Sock yarn is my all-time favorite weight of yarn to work with. Be that as it may, I have a lot of remnants from socks and other fingering weight projects, mostly shawls. I first started with a Beekeepers quilt and quickly realized that it would be too hot for California AND I had to seam all the pieces together....That was a no-go for me.
I started my sock yarn scrap blanket (cozy memory) is April of 2015. I'm using a US 3 nameless metal double points and casting on/picking up 16 stitches per each side. My squares are pretty tiny but they don't take much time to make.
I'm not really following any specific pattern, I K2TOG in the middle and K2TOG through the back loop after the stitch marker. I really like the way they come together down the middle. The size that I'm shooting for is a little bit larger than a twin size bed. I want to be able to tuck it under my feet and up over my shoulders without having to stretch it. Going for that size, I'm about half way done.
I haven't been specific about the yarn that is going into the blanket other than it needs to be fingering weight. I also haven't been specific about the placement of the colors for my squares. They are a jumble of colors and I absolutely love it! I work on this when I feel like it but I will be knitting more when I get back to the States. The sock yarn swappers group is doing #summerofsquares2016 KAL so I'll be slowly updating my blanket as I participate.
