Inspired By…Crossed Logo Motif

My assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Make a page that incorporates  a crossed or X logo design in a substantial way. This page is about several knitting projects I've completed this year. 
I cut knitting needle shapes out of kraft cardstock with my Silhouette and used them as the crossed element on my layout. Three of the quadrants house a knitting project and journaling, while the bottom quadrant contains my title. Border stitching and button embellishments support the handcrafted theme.
Each quadrant contains its own unique color palette based on the colors of the knitting project in the photo. This sweater for my husband was my big project for the year. I have no plans to start another sweater in the near future. 'Nough said.
Here's a small hat I made using two different colors of yarn and a technique called helix knitting. When I showed it to a friend she liked it so much that I gave it to her. Glad I took a picture first!
And my socks. I'm wearing them right now. Even though the color palettes are all different, by keeping them small and using the same type of supplies (washi tape, buttons, flair and mini dots) the layout holds together.
You can see what the rest of the design team created in the article here
