Hmm…I can’t seem to find the photos for this project. I’ll have to keep looking. In the meantime, in the interest of posterity…
This was another matching set of sweater and bunny. I wanted to make a warmer sweater because the baby was due in December, so I used some Decor from my stash. I wanted to make the sweater in Aran, but realized after a bit that I wouldn’t have enough. So I decided to stripe it Fibonacci-style with the Pale Country Pink (of which I have a ton). It soon turned out that I didn’t have enough even for that, and had to pull out some Winter White- which in real life looks really similar to Aran. In fact, by separating them with the pink stripes, I don’t think anyone would ever know I used two different colors.
Pattern: Child’s Placket Neck Pullover (Ravelry link)
Yarn: scraps of Patons Decor in Aran #1602, Winter White #01614 and Pale Country Pink #1645
Needles: 4.5 mm
Dates: September 8 – 21 2009
Modifications: added my usual 2 or so inches to the body, because I find it is much too short otherwise.
The bunny was also striped with the Fibonacci sequence of colors, but I didn’t end up using any Aran ‘cus I’d finished it in the sweater.

As usual you can find my finished (and unfinished!) projects in my “projects” page by clicking the tab up at the top of every page on my blog, and I also have this project in my Ravelry notebook (sans photos) here (sweater) and here (bunny).

Of course you had to get all fancy with the Fibonaci sequencing… Pfff… 😉
