Now that I've finished my Ravelympics projects, I'm getting back to some that have been sitting in my knitting bag, neglected and incomplete. The Sock Yarn Blanket has been a big hit on Ravelry. There's swaps for mini skeins all the time and tons of pictures on the projects page. I began collecting my mini-skeins (of which I have about 150) in the fall but only began knitting the itty-bitty squares in January. Each square for the blanket uses up about 3-5 grams of yarn or approximately 15-25 yards. Each of my squares are 4 inches in width. You heard me right: 4 inches. At that size I'm estimating that I may need approximately 335 squares to complete a lap-sized blanket.
So far I've completed 10.
At this rate I may be working on this project for the rest of my life.
