This is definitely feeling right to me, so I think I'm pretty close to solidifying the pattern for the bargello quilt. A few more days' contemplation should do it (mostly to give myself time to get that queen size off my sewing table).
Socktoberfest. Now all I need is a mate for this little pretty. See the green toe? That's because when the instructions say "100g" for 2 socks, it somehow doesn't translate to 50g (1 ball) for 1 sock. Sigh. Just wait. The next ball will probably do a complete sock with no issues and some left over.
There is an error in this one, which I'll see if I can correct for #2. For some reason my grafting comes out as purl rather than knit (yes, I know, the reason is user error). Have to work on that.
Love the speed of this pattern. Knit with worsted weight, and it only took me 2 days to make a sock. Problem is, I got no quilting done in those 2 days, other than rearranging my bargello a couple of times. I need more hours in the day, I think.
