Sock Yarn Blanket

So, Knitting and Crochet Blog week did not go as I had planned, but that's okay! My husband decided to take me camping last week, and that was much more important than trying to blog every day. It was lovely! We went to the Oregon Coast and the weather was amazing -- sunshine and very little winds. I even went to a yarn shop! It was just a little tiny shop, but I did, of course, pick up some sock yarn :-)

Today I want to share a new project with you. It is not a pair of socks, but it does involve sock yarn. Martine of the IMake podcast put up a lovely recipe for her sock yarn blanket. I was immediately hooked and couldn't wait to cast on!

It started with a single square...

and it grew

and greeeeeewwwwww!

This has been such an addicting project! I love using up my little balls of leftovers and watching the blanket grow. When people ask me what I am knitting, I say "It's going to grow up to be a blanket" and smile.

Thanks to the lovely Martine, I have also participated in my first yarn swap! It was so fun to make up little balls of yarn to trade with other people. I got a lovely package just the other day, and I can't wait to  knit up some squares with it :-)

What are you working on?

Happy knitting! Hope your Monday is going well!
