April progress

 These are my finished rainbow socks knitted in Mini Mochi yarn.
The yarn is lovely and soft but I was a little disappointed that I couldn't knit them up the same but the two balls turned out to be dyed differently.
The other problem was that the yarn had been broken and tied and that disrupted the smooth colour transition (you can see this on the toe of the top sock)
My finished canvas work .
The design is from Nancy's Needle and is called Iris and Fans and was lovely to stitch

Wipocalypse April

The ark has progressed a little, look for more next month

I was inspired by the work of another stitcher to get my forgotten and neglected canvaswork out.
This was the stage it had been at when it was abandoned

This is the current progress.
I am expecting this to be finished before the next update
