The only thing that’s finished on this Friday is the work week. My shopping’s not done, my wrapping’s not done, and definitely none of my current knitting projects are done. But I’ve had fun working on them this week!
I’m telling you, I can’t stop working on that scrap blanket. These squares are all of my tiny 2-gram balls and now I’ll move on to the 3-gram. The squares are just so quick, and it’s satisfying to see the “blanket” grow. The sock is my Christmas Silly String yarn from BaH Yarns and it’s just about ready for a heel, whenever I can pull myself away from my blanket squares. I also took a quick trip to my LYS because they had these new pins and I was in the area, thanks to weekly testing at work. What else could I do but pop in and get a Santa and a Tree?? Okay and yes, I also got a skein of yarn (not pictured) because the boy said he’d take another hat.
Two of my long-lost packages have arrived, though the one from Etsy was slightly damaged because she didn’t pack it well enough. She wasn’t pleased with the review I left, but hey, I wasn’t pleased with the service so it all balances out. I’m still missing two Christmas gifts but I’m crossing my fingers that they get here in time.
Maybe I’ll have a finished sock to show you in time for Sock it To Me Monday!
Your sock and blanket are so cheerful. I can’t wait to start my blanket.
Now that’s a happy blanket! I love all the colors 😍
Thanks! It’s so fun!
Scrap blankets are addicting! I love working on mine, too. Yours looks great! Are you doing any color planning, or just picking yarns at random?
Thank you! I wish I could say it was random, but my brain just won’t allow it. I have to at least make sure that there aren’t two of the same color next to each other, and most of the time I try to find a ball in a color I want. Maybe at some point I’ll be at the “grab and knit” stage!
Your sock and blanket are both so bright and beautiful!
That blanket is so beautiful!
Thank you, it will be someday!
I am glad your parcels arrived, but what the heck??? If I were that vendor, I would be ticked that my hard work was damaged in delivery. I would have given her a poor review as well. Do you weigh all your yarn out in advance for the scrappy blanket?
Oh heck no! I only weighed the tiniest ones to make sure they were big enough for a square!
Hahaha!! I would have been all the more impressed.
I’m glad the parcels turned up, fingers crossed everything gets there in time. The blanket already looks gorgeous. It’s going to be amazing when it’s done (eventually).
