lThe atest Janet Perry "Mini-Sock", Jewel, competed on Friday, January 18:
The "jewel" is Kreinik silver braid ((#16 braid, color 001) while the purple background is DMC 208. 209 and 2011. The instructions called for four coordinating colors for the background but I didn't have another purple that quite matched the three (purple is a hard color to match, IMO).
There is still the mitten to do --- I only have a few of the silver stitches in at present.
