Sock Blanket May 2015 Update

May 11, 2015

So here we are, another month and I am ready to show you my progress on the sock blanket. Last time we saw the blanket it looked like this:

Which was actually back at the tail end of March. I had knit through the majority of the colors I owned and had just started adding on some that I got in a barter with Shells. Well the blanket has been getting steady attention, to the point where I finally am beginning to repeat colors. I still have a few new ones to add on, but there will be repeats throughout.

Here is the blanket as of last night:

There has been lateral and horizontal growth on it. I hadn’t decided early enough which side was going to be the length and which would be my width which has resulted in the odd growth. I am starting to think it might be worth it to follow in the footsteps of other knitters and pick one side to be my width and make that as wide as I want it and then work up. It might prove a little easier to work on in terms of lining up colors. So far it hasn’t been too difficult, I just seem to run into wanting to place too similar of colors together. I have noticed that my palate (and that of Shells) are dramatically different. I tend to have the more autumnal colors and hers proved the bright pops of color. Which works out pretty well, don’t you agree?

 

How’s your crafting going?

    This is on my list of things to make! I have a small collection of sock yarns so I may begin my blanket very soon! I love the way yours look!

  3. The thing I love most about these blankets is how so many crazy colours work really well together. Yours is looking great.

    Love it! I’ve got another leftover sock skein for you set aside. From these:

    So, I think that’ll add to the bright pops of color.
