Sock scraps

   For a long time the sock scrap pattern that is popular on ravelry has caught my eye.  I finally decided to use my scraps from my sock knitting binge I have been on the last few months.  I looked up patterns, two caught my eye.  I looked at the samples from people’s projects.  Wow!  Thousands of blankets have been knit.  I found a knitters notes on the pattern and her blanket had such crisp lines. 

    I have taken her advice and started my squares.  I love the results.  This is going to be fun to watch take shape and to have evidence of the socks somewhere other than a basket.  I tend to give away the socks i knit so having a blanket with a piece of each will be fun.

This is the pattern I chose

      Now I am trying to make it more random but it goes against every fiber of my being randomly placing colors.
