wip wednesday: blanket edition

The garter squish blanket is grooooowing! I'm almost done! I had nine skeins of Hobby Lobby I Love this Yarn Stripes that is held double with another yarn from stash throughout--and I just attached the ninth skein! Wooohooo!! As you can see, it's couch length now and super cozy. I love how I've been able to create two gradients as well--first one is more purple, and the second one goes from navy to medium blues. Loving this!! And the best part is I will have churned through over 4,000 yards of acrylic in my stash that I really had no plans for or any motivation to knit. Win-win-win!

And as a testament to how fast this sock pattern is, I'm ready to start the heel! And this is with the poor sock being only touched when I was too tired to manhandle the blanket! Definitely loving both of these projects!


  1. Wow! That blanket is amazing, and what a stash-buster!! Fabulous, as is the sock - that colourway is so bright and cheerful :) Sounds like you're having a great knitting week :)

  2. Blanket's looking good! I haven't touched mine in a while, but it will be so good to get all that yarn out of stash! I'm still in love with that sock yarn-it's so much fun!!

  3. That blanket will be so luscious to cuddle under! With our temps getting down to 2 tomorrow night I just might wish it were mine!
