Big Blanket News

I have huge news regarding the blanket. The best blanket. The blanket I knit a two-inch square on every day, and have since the January before Elliot was born. The Knitted Patchwork Recipe scrap sock blanket that is my favorite thing that I have ever knit.

What? You don’t remember me talking about the blanket? That is probably because progress is so slow I haven’t bothered to mention it since last February. It is the first thing I knit every day. When I’m going to travel I make up the squares so I don’t have to take it with me, but every day from January 1, 2016 to April 20, 2018 is represented.

It’s big now. Not quite 5 foot on each side, but certainly big enough to snuggle up with. I’m going to sew in the ends (only the edges need to be sewn in, as sewing in the ends has been part of my daily work all along). I’ll be adding an attached I-Cord so the blanket has a finished look.

I don’t know how long it will take me to do the I-Cord, but that isn’t stopping me from starting my next Knitted Patchwork Recipe blanket. I’ll be casting on my first square tonight. It is so much a part of my day to knit a square I would really miss working on it.

I have to admit, I’m a little sad to be done adding squares on this blanket. There are so many memories stitched into the fabric. It represents a period of time that has been incredibly difficult and incredibly rewarding. Time is going so fast, and I am having a hard time accepting that my blanket is already done.
