DD goes to Montessori and this is her last year with her teacher (she’s been there for almost three years). I am modifying the Fibo-optic to look like a trinomial cube.
Oh, joy! The afghan is done! The afghan is done!
I must admit that in the end, I do like it. I was having some doubts midway!
Hope Miss Marshall will like it.
(Notes on the afghan: I modified this afghan from a known pattern:
Pattern: Fibo-optic by Pat Ashforth & Steve Plummer of Woolly Thoughts
Yarn: Lion Brand Homespun.
- Fawn (1 skein)
- Cobalt (1 skein)
- Granite (2 skeins)
- Sierra (1 skein)
- Covered Bridge Red (1 skein)
- Candy Apple (1 skein)
- Montana Sky (1 skein)
- Sunshine State (1 skein)
- Black (2 skeins)
To make this match the tri-nomial cube, I ended up leaving off the last four blocks.
I sewed up the front blocks and it took me a long time to do, so I ended up playing with a different technique for the “shadow” blocks. I cast on all of the stitches, but added one extra one between the two like colors. When I get to that stitch I K it on the RS row and P it on the WS row (after I’ve increased). It’s working out and I’m pleased with the result.
