It got me thinking about making a blanket for myself, something that would take years to assemble. Something that was a mixture of lots of yarn from lots of projects I've made over the years. I got out the leftover yarn bits and looked at them, and decided that my blanket theme would be BLUE. I make lots of blue stuff. I have lots of blue yarn.
I started knitting up four inch squares. I knit lots of them, then I got bored and did some mitered squares. Then I stopped and put it all away. I took it all out last night and started some new squares. Here's what I have so far:
A good start, and a good mix of colors and textures. This is a fun project for me, something with no deadline, something to take out and play with when I feel lilke it. It's going to be a wonderful blanket when it's all done. Years from now. I love blue.
