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.

  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.
