It’s been a while since I updated on the progress of my sock yarn blanket! This is a project I started way in 2012 and have been adding to faithfully everytime I had some leftovers from knitting a pair of socks. It’s a great way to tackle that leftover stash! (Has yours assumed vast proportions too? It’s gotten so bad that I don’t even dare looking at it anymore.)
Anyway, I’ve started using my Grandma’s yarn for new squares. There wasn’t enough left for a bigger project for the most part; also, she really did like her muted colours (which is fine, obviously – you do you!), but I don’t see myself knitting brown socks in the near future. It seemed ideal for the blanket, though, to have a couple of squares in neutral colours between the colourful explosion that is the rest of them.
I’m now at 33 patches out of the 54 I plan to do. I’m getting there! Might only be a couple of years now. 😉
