Back to the Barn Raising Quilt

My Barn Raising Quilt (oh the folly of knitting a blanket on size 2 needles) has been languishing for some time now.  This is due to a series of sad circumstances involving a mean stewardess, some missing stitch markers, and a charming, but wool loving, mutt.

I'm back to it, though, knitting two squares at once.

This quilt is probably the best use ever for leftover sock yarn.  And it's a fun knit — pretty good Olympic knitting, which is what got me started again.

The quilt is made up of 42 knitted squares, which means I will probably finish that at some point in the year 2018 at the rate I've been going.  It's meant for Ellie, so as long as I pick it up and finish before she goes off to college, I should be ok.  Fortunately, I have lots of sock leftovers and plenty of plane flights ahead of me — this is the perfect airplane project — so stay tuned for more progress.

  1. I know zero about knitting. But I do love knitted things…no matter what their function. These colors
    are gorgeous and if these will be a blanket then someone
    will be cuddling in a rainbow of warmth and delight.
