Illusion knitting is very cool and there's a Linux scarf pattern I plan to do at some point.

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

knitty gritty did a great show on illusion knitting. The pattern is for a scarf, so you dont have to worry about any shaping and you can focus on the illusion! I have always wanted to try it but never got around to it. Good luck!
