bicolor beauties

I have been really in love with the simple beauty of two-color stitches right now -- simple stitches, colorwork made easy. Some of them are a repeat on a stockinette background (like Check This Out), while many are just bicolored Linen Stitch. What makes them special is that when completed, the finished fabric often looks more like it's been woven than knit -- especially in the stitches that involve slipping and crossing the contrast yarn over the front (like Bicolor Linen and Bicolor Sand stitch.)

What lovely knitting trends have you run across lately? I feel like these would look extra-exceptional in handspun with a solid, neutral contrasting color.
