Kindness

Sock yarn Blanket

I've been working on my blanket pretty steadily in between other projects. My squares are about 4" x 4" and each one takes about an hour for me to knit. It's not that I'm running low on sock scraps or anything but I am a little disappointed in the variety I have available. I don't want to pull from full skeins so I limited myself to scraps only. Most of my socks are either for Spicy, who only likes boring man colors, or for me, who tends to choose loud bright clown barf colors (probably as a reaction to knitting with so many boring man shades). so it makes for kind of a weird combo, honestly.

Enter my super awesome knitting friend, Crystal of Sonnet of the Moon. She very generously offered to share her scraps with me and she sent me this overwhelming amount of sock yarn. I'm super stoked that her sock scrap collection has very different colors from mine, so I'm on a renewed blanket kick and busy adding new colorful squares every day.

I keep waiting for the day that I get sick of this project but it hasn't happened yet.

  1. I love how this is turning out! I'm living vicariously through you...this is exactly the sort of project I like but I'll probably never get around to making. Instead, I'll make the scrap scarves I've been planning and just wait patiently for blanket updates. I'm so happy you like the minis!
