Start and Finish Lines

 I finished the socks from Marsel's local yarn shop.   The skeins were labeled the same dye lot but they had variations that were a bit random and I had to make myself relax over the differences! (The main differences were the variations in the length of each stripe!) The yarn feels delicious on the feet and that is a wonderful outcome!  (Classic Elite Liberty machine wash wool)
 I cut out some patriotic fabrics.   I have quite a stack of red/white and blue fabrics that I hope to get done by July 4th .
 I made a pair of wrist warmers while I decide what I am going to knit next.
I began to piece the apple core pieces I cut out in April.  And so my week begins.......

  9. Love the colours in those socks. I've not tried hand-piecing except as English paper piecing; you seem to be doing it without any 'paper' support.
