Addicted

I've really gotten into watching Molly on her Homespun House podcast and she has been making a Cozy Memories Blanket out of leftover balls of sock yarn. I thought the idea was really cute and who doesn't have a million tiny balls of sock yarn stashed away that are too small to make an entire project but too gorgeous to just throw away?!

So I cast on for my Cozy Memories Blanket and I've been hooked ever since. My socks in progress are being very neglected right now. But can you blame me? Look at these colors!


It's really neat to be able to look at these squares and remember each project I made with a particular yarn. Even the hubby thought it was kind of cool - he even picked out which squares were made with yarn I had used for his socks. 

I started with the purple square at the bottom of the picture and then each square is knitted onto another square by picking up stitches and casting on as needed. It's really a neat idea and so easy because you don't have to do any seaming this way. 

Here's what the back looks like: 



The pattern is the Knitted Patchwork Recipe by Martine Ellis. It's a free pattern on Ravelry and is very easy to follow.

Check out my project page for a list of the yarns that I've used so far. 

I hope everyone has a lovely Easter holiday!
