Progress!

I’m very pleased to announce that I’m actually making progress on the tote of projects I posted about a couple days ago!

Remember this? My Sock Yarn Blankie?

It has 18 new squares! I haven’t counted yet, but i’m probably going to need about 30 more before it’s completely finished, and will also be doing the i-cord edging, but 18 in a couple days is pretty significant for something I haven’t worked on in years!

Here’s a couple of the new lovelies:

Can you spot them? I’m using a bunch of mini-skeins from Ravelry swaps, and it’s turning out quite nicely, I think. I’m just wanting to finish this one for now (you’ll find out why in a week or so..), but i’m thinking if I did one again, I’d probably just buy a bunch of mini skein grab bags off of Etsy, or something like that. I have a bunch of fingering weight yarn, but a lot of it is solid, and in large quantities, which really doesn’t lend itself to this project!

 

Also on my list for this week is adding more products to my Etsy shop. I’ve gotten really bad about that, because i’ve MADE a ton of things, but haven’t added them all to the shop. Hopefully I can add one or two per day, and get everything listed this week!

Packing and the Blanket

Today is my last day living at university.. ever!

I’ve finished all my finals, had my last breakfast with my WWC friends, and now I’m being quite productive: Watching season 6 of Bones and knitting this:

Shelly Kang’s Sock Yarn Blankie

Made out of scraps of sock yarn that I have leftover from various projects

And also some that I bought for this project because I love it so much 🙂

It’s kind of like quilting, but without the aggravation of having to cut squares with straight sides!

I love it!
