...The Wonder Blanket...

What have I gotten myself into?

After catching up on the Miranda KAL and seeing all the beautiful hats being created, I saw a new thread had been opened entitled The Wonder Blanket. Yet again, Project: Stash has caught my attention.

Now it's funny. I was “organizing” my yarn the other day (why on earth I wanted to organize wool in 90+ degree heat is beyond me) and found my plastic sack filled to the brim with scraps. Quickly, I shoved it to the back of the cupboard as I did not want to have to THINK about what I was going to do with it! WELL…I have an idea now…

 Um...I have a bit of barf to clean up
 A simple, garter stitch blanket made out of scraps.

I have seen many knitters\crocheter's do this with sock yarn and create the Sock Yarn Blanket or the Bee Keeper's Quilt. However, I do not have a lot of sock yarn OR the energy to learn how make a hexipuff, even if it is incredibly easy! THIS, however, I can handle!


  1. Nice! That is funny I just was looking through my shoebox of scraps and I ended up making a couple baby hats from them! I can't wait to see how your blanket comes along! Great idea. Also I know a couple people doing the hexipuff blanket and it seems like a really huge endeavor :)

  2. I laughed out loud ... it's nice when "aha" moments happen together. I'm so glad you're knitting along -- I love that I'll be getting inspired by you!

  3. Great idea. I also need to use up some of my huge scrap pile. I was thinking about making random crocheted squares and eventually turning them into a blanket but I never seem to get around to it. Maybe one day. :-)
