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!
