Socks and stuff

Well I finished that pair of socks in the pink twist bamboo yarn. My tension was a bit off with the first sock and that used a bit more yarn and then I ran out of the yarn for the toe of the second sock.
I did a blend of two yarns I had on hand
this is what they turned out like

Sew with them done it was time to grab another ball of yarn to see what they turn out .... here's the start of the next pair
 some great yarn I picked up in Alberta last fall. I really like that pattern that is appearing as I knit.

I have the place mats ready to bind and I have started on the panel for the Relay for Hope Quilt.
Here is my sketch with the panel underneath.
and here is the panel sew far
And that brings me to the the winner of my blog-iversay 
Sheila from Sheila's Quilt World was the lucky on in the draw.
Thanks to all who left a comment and thanks to you all for stopping in to see what I have been up to.
Sew until next time 
in stitches
