A little update on my blanket. It’s now 23 inches wide and I’m still addicted to knitting this. I have so much yarn yet to use, it has the potential to be gargantuan. Happy wednesday!

  1. Wow, your blanket is coming out absolutely beautiful. Love the color blendings. What type of yarn are you using?

    • Thanks! I’m using all fingering weight sock yarn…..leftover bits from all the socks I’ve made over the years. I’ve only used a fraction so far of what I have stashed.

      • You must be a very patient knitter, between that stitch and sock yarn you will be working on that blanket for a while. The results however are glorious. I am sick of my dk and wool eater combo I am making for my daughter, luckily I only have 4 more color combos to go.

      • Oh my goodness, I am going to have to try this although even with the testing the knot I will still be nervous about trusting the knot for awhile. When I think of how long I have been weaving long ends under I want to bang my head. Your method will sure make all the ends more manageable. Thanks for the tip!

      • this works really well if you don’t have to change colours at the beginning of the row. I think it also works better with thinner yarn than, say, a bulky where the knot would be more obvious. but yes, I still tug at it and wonder how it all works and stays put!
