Winning The Gold

Even with cramped fingers, a sore back and a slight case of blurred vision at one point... I made it just in time to win the gold.

It was not an easy feat to have 100 squares done on my Left Over Sock Yarn Blanket. At one point I had six little squares all on one needle trying desperately to speed things up.

I do have to thank the family for allowing the every growing pile of laundry to go unnoticed. I did manage to feed them semi-healthy meals while my fingers were working some magic, but housework was not even a thought. It might take me another 17 days to get the house back to a presentable state;)

On a personal note, dearest daughter, I know you love this blanket soooo much that you can't stop looking at it, but honey it's not going on your bed. ever. The same goes for my husband. Yes, I know we share a bed... that still doesn't count.

These are all of the left over bits that I have. I think I'll be needing more.

That's beautiful! I love the colors, the randomness, and the textures. Well done! Congradulations on finishing it in time!

Woo Hoo! Looks great :-) And yes, I think you're going to have to start knitting more socks again to have enough to make the next 100 squares :-)

I think it is turning out great, and I think this blanket is the perfect excuse to make and buy more sock yarn.
