Not as I planned

When a couple of rows of knitting while waiting for dinner to cook turned into just one more row, 
then I'll just finish this pattern repeat
and then some reversing up.
HiyaHiya Great Wall IV design by Qianer
I decided it was not a good time to start sewing.
The pretty pre cut scraps are waiting patiently still.
Fortunately all went well at Saturday knit group and I finished my sock earlier today.
That's two the same or as the same as one gets with these multi coloured yarns.
Pretty Wendy Happy yarn, a bamboo/nylon mix which is surprisingly warm to wear and has a lovely sheen. Perfect for the spring season.
one of these days I'll get back to the sewing machine!
Thanks for having us Cheryll.
Have a wonderful week everyone.

As usual you've outdone yourself. I have to ask though - will you have to dust the cobwebs off your poor neglected sewing machine?

Fiona said...

you've done well to match up with the variegated yarn....

Beautiful knitting as always, & those apple cores have me intrigued, how on earth do they sew together?! I will have to come back & find out!!

Beautiful socks! I find it quite difficult to match a patterned yarn with a textured pattern but yours look fantastic.
