My original intent was to test out a new concept, but for better or worse when it was time to cast on, I decided to revisit Twegen, with its reversible fluted rib stitch. Why? I simply couldn't resist the urge to see it in these warm neutral shades of Cotton Fleece.
Color-wise, the photos aren't particularly accurate because the camera and its hapless operator (me) can't quite capture the warm brown undertones. Each strip incorporates two shades for a tone-on-tone effect, and you'll have to trust me when I say the colors are richer and deeper than they appear here.
Strip 1 blends brownish black with gray brown.
Strip 2 combines gray brown with deep brown.
Strip 4 features medium brown with cream.
Here in blog world, I've been preoccupied with the search for a Four Seasons replacement yarn and the fast and easy Oyster Bay shawl. In non-blog world, I was quietly working on this afghan, so all the strips have been completed, bound off and are ready to seam.
My method for seaming and edging is very easy, but I'm always happier with the results when I focus, work deliberately and take my time. The next few weeks are filled with deadlines and commitments, so these final stages may progress even more slowly than usual. And that's okay.
As eager as I am to see this come together, for now it's enough to know the coffee afghan is perking steadily in the background.
The pattern for this fast and easy reversible afghan, Twegen, has been released.
