I started with this pattern last night and with only 21 stiches, size 11 needles I have about 20 inches done already. I really like the texture. My husband said he thought it was cool, too, and I'd never have tried it had I not seen KellyK answer somebody's request for a picture of it. I'm using an acrylic scrap I had left-over from another project. Anybody done with with like a really soft something? Seems like this could be good for a blanket, too.
No progress on Dakota's stocking because I ran out of graph paper to work out the chart for her name.
