Kieran, thanks for another fun pattern!

I’ve got two small balls and one almost full size. The fun in this pattern for me is in color play. The wilder the combo the better. Also, do not judge it until the whole thing is done. I’m working on distributing the three balls evenly throughout the piece so some of these colors will come back.

These pics show the piece towards the end of the fifth repeat.

I’m using size 4mm needles (pattern calls for 5mm) only because I recently bought a set of Signature circulars and I wanted to try them out. I’m satisfied with the fabric I’m getting. A severe blocking will loosen it out more.
