Destash with a blanket

The building where I live is slowly but surely falling down, and next week I’ll be moving into a new one. I want to  destash as much as possible before then though. Which has lead to a few hats, and a couple of unfinished toys. But then I found all my little scraps, the buts too big to throw away but too small to do much with. I don’t like waste, so I wanted to make some kind of blanket. I’d started something similar at the end of 2014 but ended up leaving it at my mum’s house. I figured I’d go for it because if I don’t get it big enough I can add to it as I finish each project.  



At the beginning.

Overall the pattern is fairly simple. It’s free too. You can get it here if you’re intersted. I like this kind of thing because I can. Put it down and pick it up again. Rest for courses and travelling. 

This is where I am now.



This is what I’m carrying around in my bag.

 

I like this, the colour changes keep it bright and lively.  I’ve also got some yarns that in just not keen on in here.

      Yeah! Mine clashes but pleases me immensely. And I can point to bits and say what each colour was.

      Funny thing is the origin oak was made with Noro…
