Because I'm putting off doing TAST and more on BIrds of a Feather! Postponement, thy name is thatyank! LOL

Two finishes for the Janet Perry Mittens & Mini-Socks bargello class...

Autumn Trees, completed October 10, 2012, using all variegated threads (except for the tree trunk):

Threads used - DMC 3031 for trunks; DMC 4126 for cuff;  for tree leaves, DMC 51, 61, and 4075 4130; WDW Kudzu (2200), Cornbread (2222), Marigold (2225), Carrot (2226),  and Fiesta (4131); San Man Threads Autumn Leaves (049) and Hot Stuff (058); and GAST Bittersweet, Forest Glade, Fudge Ripple, and Pumpkin Patch (4402).

Variegated threads are hard to predict when in the skein which colors will end up where so there are a few trees that sort of merge together...

 

And the mitten for the same assignment, completed October 11, 2012:

Threads used - DMC 3031 for trunks; DMC 4126 for cuff; and for tree leaves: DMC 51, 61, and 4075 4130; WDW   Kudzu (2200), Marigold (2225), and   Autumn Leaves (2234); San Man Threads Autumn Leaves (049); and GAST Bittersweet, Forest Glade, and Fudge Ripple. Because of the shape and overall size of the mitten, it used fewer colors.

 

This pattern reminds me strongly of the one I did last back in November, 2011, in the 2011 Bargello Club:

White for the "stems make it looks like a lot of pastel lollipops! And the lollipops are oval instead of round... and in rayon threads instead of cottons!
