laurel challenge -- knit a cushion

I actually started the knitting on Saturday.
It's coming along nicely; I finished the first row of motifs with the dark grey CC last night and started the second row in light grey CC.  The repeat is super-easy, especially since I know the design so well, so it goes pretty fast, even over 182 stitches.  I'm being careful to keep good notes on the pattern, so I can include it in my documentation.  My intent is that it will end up about 14x14.  Hopefully I measured my swatch correctly.

I think it might be puckering a little, though, so I'm going to have to be more careful about my tension.  It's hard to tell, because the first ball of white yarn had some thin spots, and the puckery bits seem to coincide with the thin spots.  Cause?  Effect?  It may be too early to tell.  I can see the dark floats across the back of the cream-colored MC, but I don't mind too much.  I think it gives an illusion of depth.  I may care more later.  The grey yarns I spun are a pleasure to knit with, especially the dark grey.  I'm very pleased with them.
