Scrappy Knitted Blanket Growing

Believe it or not, I was already running out of leftover yarn to make the blanket of on-point squares I blogged about a few weeks back.  The biggest issue was not having a good choice of pretty colors.

I put out a call to some knitting friends, who responded very generously (and in some cases happily as they got rid of scrap yarn too and it went for a nice purpose).

Now I have lots of colors from which to choose!  Thanks everyone!

I’ll put up a picture of how this project is going soon–it’s slow as it takes about 40 minutes to make most of the squares–but fun as I love working with all the different colors and textures.  It’s like making a quilt out of yarn…

I Have Some Socks For These Feet!

See?

Talula’s are the middle.  She liked the orange/green glitter yarn.  And, Wilhelmina liked the blue/green glitter yarn, so I crafted around those choices.  Bowen’s are less wild, which is fitting for a boy.

These socks will be birthday gifts–to be gifted in September when three of the five grandchildren have birthdays.  All three pairs have been made from leftover sock yarn.  Kelly Enright got a pair back in February for his birthday, as you may recall.  They’re here on the blog.

Let’s hope they will all fit by fall/winter.  These children are growing like weeds!
