Diamond Dreams Revisited

Lately, I've been wanting to revisit some of my older knitting and crochet patterns.

I get to give my brain a rest from planning and designing, I get to use up yarn in my stash more quickly, to take some new and better photos, and besides, gosh darn it, I like my designs.  They're fun to make.

Diamond Dreams is one of my oldest crochet patterns.  I'm using James C. Brett Marble Chunky, 4 balls total.

This is what my dining room table looks like as I sew the squares together.

I admit, doing the mattress stitch to join the squares is the only part I find mildly annoying, but I do like the result.  The colors in this next photo are truer, too.
