Finished but not

The joy of knitting socks is that halfway through you have a finished object. The frustration of knitting socks is that you still have a second (hopefully identical) sock to make.


The joy of knitting a blanket (composed of blanket squares) is that partway through you have a finished square. The frustration of knitting a blanket is that you have lots more squares to do.


(I am proud of myself for estimating exactly half the ball of yarn when I knit this square. It makes the rest of my blanket calculations easier.)

  1. Oh great sock, I’m on mittens so I feel your pain. Apparently there is a technique to knit two at once but I haven’t tried one yet. I keep seeing lots of blanket projects I might have to start one 😀

    1. Ooh I need to make mittens, too. I realized recently that I only have fingerless gloves…
      I’ve heard of 2 at a time socks. I think you have to use Magic Loop, though, which I don’t really like.
