Learning K1B

I bought Knit One Below when it first came out....but I got a little sidetracked with other projects.  My LYS had an Alchemy Yarns trunk show a few weeks back, and I picked up this book, as well as Migrations to knit up the cover project.  I firmly stepped right over the grey yarn, called Sanctuary, because I didn't want to do something EXACTLY like the picture, and because it was 26.00 per skein of DK.  This project required four skeins of Sanctuary.  Oh, HELL no.

I hit upon this as a project suitable for my cousin's teen.  Cool enough to wear, snuggly enough to serve as a hug.  So far, I like the stitch pattern.

isn't this what used to be called the shake stitch?
