call it done

It’s been a 2-year project, one that was started with no clear idea of what I was making… scarf, shawl, blanket? I’m going to call it shanket… cross between a shawl and blanket. I suppose I could have gone with the old serape idea…


For now, it’s a nice colourful addition to my bed. And I’m calling it done.

Scrappy Linen Stitch Blanket using, not surprisingly, the linen stitch.

Size 4mm (6US) needles.

Yarn: Fingering weight yarn, leftover from years of socks.

Measures 30″ by 74″

  1. Beautiful colours. Looks lovely on the bed. It is great finishing a long term project and even better when you are delighted with the finished blanket.

  2. oh it’s so lovely. And I love that it’s all your scrappy bits from socks you’ve knit with love.

  3. I’m working on a blanket with left over super chunky yarn. I’ve also been holding 2 or more yarns together to make it thick enough. I’ve been trying to use up leftover yarn from other projects and I’m really liking how it’s turning out.
