scrappy blanket

Project info
Knitting
me and my bed
Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
Notes

Using scraps leftover from socks…all fingering weight.

Cast on 418 stitches and knit this using the linen stitch: linen stitch instructions

Bind off very loosely!

2/14: Still not sick of this. I’ve made it to 10.5 inches and still can’t wait to try the next colours.

2/7/15: and I’m calling this done! I suppose I could keep going until it’s the size of a room, I have that much scrappy bits of sock yarn, but I’m ready to bind it off and have it finished. Maybe another one?

30” by 74” blocked. (35 x 60 pre-blocking) Perfect for draping at the end of my bed.

Apr 20, 2018: I’m going back in! The blanket through use has stretched longer and narrower, 32” x 72” and it just needs more. And fortunately I have even more leftover sock yarn, so back on the needles it goes and we’ll see how far I get this time.

I think this pretty well sums me up in the process vs. product debate.
