Scrap Sock Yarn Blanket Update


I thought I'd share with the you the progress of the eternal blanket.  The progress seems to be slower and slower as I round another corner, but I love sitting under the now lap blanket and adding a few rows here and there each evening.  I daydream about when I will be done, how big will it be.  Have I run out of sock yarn.....nope, not yet.

As a knitter I think we all have odds and ends tucked here and there.  I remember starting this blanket in the middle and thinking there is no way this will be a pretty blanket.  Oh how wrong.  I love the way this looks!  Each yarn I pick up to add has a memory-a pair of socks for me, my husband, or one of the kids.  Maybe a shawl, or a scarf.  I remember each and every one!

To my delight, Andi from My Sister's Knitter blog sent me some of her odds and ends to add to the cause.  As you know, presents in the mail are simply the best.  I love the array of colors and the sweet little stitch marker along with some tea.  Thank you Andi!

  4. That blanket could go on forever and ever and only get better! Love the way it's coming together, the way the colors play and meld, and the way it's full of sock yarn from your stash and that of friends. Happy knitting!

  8. Wow! This is really nice Karen! I just started on project two (Malt blanket in the Simple Collection) at tincanknits.com. It is a lavender color for a grandbaby of an old friend! I have too many things going on but I always enjoy sitting and knitting a few stitches to relax at the end of the day! Thanks for sharing your beautiful sock yarn blanket!

  25. Just beautiful! Reminds me of this HUGE scrap yarn blanket our friend crochet for us as a house warming gift. It is the most beautiful colorful piece in our home and we love it!

    How big do you think you'll make it?

  26. I love seeing the progress on this!! So pretty!! I think I may end early on my mitered square sock blanket and do this instead! The colors are amazing, and it just look cosy! (As if I need more blankets to snuggle under!)
