Timeless Tuesday

I swear. This is the last one. Yes, another Kaffe Fassett sweater! Tumbling Blocks this time:

This was supposed to be for Rob's dad, Christmas 1998. However, between buying the house, getting a puppy...he didn't get it until April 1999! But I don't know what else I was working on in the mean time. I'm not a slow knitter. I know I was also doing scrapbooking, and supply teaching, but really...I should of had it finished before then, or at least have other things to show for that timeframe! (I'm sure there's probably hats or mitts). Again, this was knit with mostly acrylic worsted weight yarns, although the mottled diamonds were two strands of DK/sock yarns. I like the Tumbling Blocks idea, and I think I did a good job of separating yarns into light/medium/dark (the picture shows all the dark as being about the same colour, but there really are more than two different dark yarns!), but there's still something a little too bold about this sweater. Perhaps the blocks should have been a smaller scale? I'd definately do this one again as an afghan, although perhaps not the afghan in his book. Actually, many of his designs would make stunning afghans.

That sweater makes me think of the old video game called Qbert, lol.

Omigosh, she can open the fridge??? Mine tries now and then, but hasn't quite managed it ... yet.
