I absolutely love looking at all the squares and reminiscing about the projects that came from certain yarns. I have a fantastic group of friends who also added scrap yarn to the pile so its been great fun seeing them look for their yarn in the blanket.
I have no immediate plans to start another mitered square blanket but I do have a few granny stripe blankets started.
My squares "formula" was a US 3 needle, casting on 32 stitches. Slip the first stitch, knit to the last two before your marker, K2Tog, SM, SSK, knit to the end. The second row is Slip the first stitch and then knit across.
The randomness of the colors and textures makes me so happy! Thanks for appreciating!
Still enjoying Man in the High Castle and joining Ginny and Frontier Dreams in their "Alongs" this week.
I love it! I love how the randomness of the colors has made this so special. I've thought about starting a mitered square blanket, but don't at this point have enough sock yarn, so I"m waiting. But you're looks great!ReplyDelete
I love being able to pick through the squares and have memories of working on them. The scraps will come soon...you could also swap with people if you have some larger leftovers you could split up. There are quite a few groups on Rav!Delete
That is absolutely gorgeous. A real labour of love. Well done. Looks so cosy!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I love it, perfect for California, not too heavy but warm enough to grab it to use.Delete
Yours is the first I've seen finished and it is amazing! What a keepsakeReplyDelete
Mine is larger than a throw but not quite large enough for a twin size bed so I wasn't making as many square but I really love it! I'm going to have this blanket for quite some time.Delete
It is gorgeous. I'm not surprised you slept under it as soon as you could. Love the border. Rainbow seems the most perfect choice.ReplyDelete
The rainbow yarn is my favorite yarn ever so I thought it fitting to be the finishing touch for this awesome project! It's been on the bed every night since I finished it:)Delete
gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!! I love the edging :)ReplyDelete
It really seems like it brings the whole thing together doesn't!Delete
What an amazing piece of work! It must feel so satisfying to finally have it finished after working on it for so long. Love the colourful border!ReplyDelete
I'm just so excited to have it done! The knitting has been done for awhile but the weaving in the ends took quite a bit of time!Delete
Wow this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the icord border .... it really finishes it off nicely. Thanks for the formula. Might have to give in and start one.ReplyDelete
I love an icord finish, it adds the perfect amount of structure and the lovely rainbow! I would definitely give it a try. I know you've knit enough socks to have some scraps going. It's always nice to swap with people too, it's the perfect way to try new yarn.Delete
Such a lovely blanket!ReplyDelete
