I hadn't planned on starting another blanket. If anything, I should be working on the Colorado blanket (that continues to sit unloved in the corner of my room), or finishing up some baby goodies as August feels as though it is speedily coming around the corner.
...at Camp WannaKnitKnit a bunch of the girls were working on their barn-raising/friendship blankets in a variety of wonderful sock yarns, and
...this past weekend I was clearing out the spare room (aka my dumping ground for various WIP projects) for the arrival of Joe's kids this coming weekend; I was stunned with the amount of sock yarn I have accumulated, and the leftover odds and ends that have been piling up in a bowl
At first I was thinking I'd attempt the barn raising blanket because the ones I've seen are going to be fab. And I even started a square... numerous times. (Kudos to the girls - those pesky squares are darn fiddly.) And then I remembered the Dulle Griet hexagon blanket I'd seen online. Yes that was it, I was going to use my scrappy bits of sock yarn to make a hexagon blanket.
I haven't put much thought into the 'design' other than to stick with shades of blue, green, pink and brown. And although I do prefer the original in the Noro yarns, I think this is going to be a fun way to use up some of my odds and ends.
