These are the latest blocks I finished for my afghan:
The one with cables turned out really nice. The pattern is really beautiful and the yarn I used emphasized the cable design. The next block has a funny story:
The pattern included YO (yarn over). I was so happy to be making another block that I completely forgot what YO meant, even though it was spelled out along with SSK, for our convenient reference... Instead, I kept thinking that YO meant 'yarn over the needle', and I carefully put the yarn over the needle. In place of the neat holes I would have had (see photo below) had I engaged my brain before knitting, the block turned out with a completely different pattern - with a line across each square with stockinette stitch.
|This is what the block was supposed to look like...|
