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.
