This is what I crochet when taking the train to work: a small size granny square blanket. Each square measures 12×12″ (30x30cm).
I am usually pretty good in boiling down stash but no matter how hard I try – some skeins seem to last forever. They’re mainly sock yarn in weird color gradients, hardly more than one skein each and I know I will never (ever) use them for anything “real.” However, I wanted to get rid of them AND at the same time I needed some easy crochet or knitting to take along with me. So I decided to make a blanket: 1 ball = 1 square.
This is where I am right now:
Gruesome colors, I know. How about joining them in turquoise? Same color for the edging. That will brighten up the blanket and unite its parts. Maybe not turquise but orange. Not sure yet.
However, another two and a half squares and I am done. That will make a nice, small blanket, 47×35″ / 120x90cm.
Have a good weekend.
I’d like turquoise and orange!!!
Both? Uhh, I need to think about that …

Hallo, sehr schöne Decke! Hast du Sockenwolle verwendet? Wieviel braucht man für 1 Quadrat? Häkelnadel Nr. 4?
2,5er Nadel und 4fädige Sockenwolle – jedes Quadrat (17 Reihen) ist ungefähr ein Knäuel (die Lauflänge war nicht immer gleich).
