Diamond Lace Cloth

Here's a simple design with lacy diamonds. Sometimes I think the simpler patterns look better than more elaborate patterns. This one is pretty easy to knit up. Both pictures show the cloth unblocked. It definitely looks better after a bit of blocking. Unfortunately the pics I took after blocking were all out of focus; guess I was just having a bad camera day.

Stitches used in this cloth include:
Coral Pattern, BW2 pg 269
Seed Stitch, BW1 pg 11
