Mystery Stitch

Here's the first look at the largest project that I've worked on in years!

I'm curious to watch it take shape, so I'm not going to give hints or show a photo of the finish now.

This is approximately 4 evenings of work... again, mostly during Penguins games.

I started with the brown (yes, dark brown on black... fun!) and was anticipating problems, but it's been moving along smoothly, so far.

There's lots of tweeding (blended thread colors) going on in the pattern, some of which you can already see, and I know blending filament will be involved, too.

I think I'll definitely be switching between this and other smaller projects, otherwise I'm sure I'll go insane.

This will be a gift when complete, so hopefully 7 months is a reasonable timeframe. We'll have to see!
