Sock Blanket – Post 2

Got some more joining done last night. I’ve still got 7 loose squares to attach – Those should be done tonight.

All the way across!

It’s a little difficult to see everything that has been added in the picture, so you can see it below in sections:

I am SO looking forward to weaving in all those ends! (I am not.)

Sock Blanket – Post 1

A few days ago, I went crazy. And by that I mean I jumped on the Sock Blanket Bandwagon. It took me three nights to complete the first 25 squares, which you can see below:

25 squares for the first row!

Last night, I connected my first 2 squares. It was even more fun than creating the individual squares!

First 2 squares are joined!

This is the complete image of what I accomplished last night – 8 joining squares. Let’s hope these things remain as addicting and fun as they are now!

Progress as of 1/6/15 – 17 squares joined!

Made some dishcloths for my grandmother. I love this pattern – so quick, easy and impressive.

BSJs!

I finished two BSJs today (one just needed buttons). They are going to family friends who just had twins. They will be the cutest twins in the world in these!

No flash.

The true color is actually somewhere in between the two.

Until next time,

Quick update

Nothing too exciting this past weekend. Brewed a double batch of beer with Corey for the Holyoke Canoe Homebrew Competition, and used our new counter-flow wort chiller, so that was cool.

Also started some baby hats for Meaghan’a baby, Julia. Sadly I don’t have any pictures yet, but these are the colors I’m using:

They’re going to be super adorable!
