Melon Semi-Finish

Now that the Quilt Show excitement has died down, I've had time to pick up my Melon Wedge again to finish stitching the rind. All the stitching is done now and I've just got the finishing-finishing left. I can't wait to put this together!

I went back to the LNS with the discount voucher that my husband got for voting (more splurging!) and bought some delicious yarns. Any excuse, right?

I couldn't get a good picture of all the color variation in these. They're Lang Mille Colori, and the color is just sumptuous. I'm hoping that buying the yarn will force me to learn how to knit socks, which I've been wanting to do for a while but haven't had the courage/time/energy.

Happy xxx's!

such a cool melon! The yarn is lovely, but isn't it too thick for sock knitting?

Looking forward to seeing your melon all put together. Knitting socks is something I would love to learn to do. You've chosen some pretty yarn to work with. :)
