Not much of a dent, but each little square counts! Here the is sock blankie so far in all its glory:
And some closer shots:
Things I've learned from my sock blankie:
1) Picking up stitches - If you look at bottom row of my blankie, the stitches that were picked up weren't very uniform. I was picking them up in the wrong location, which lead to bumps on the reverse side that was not very smooth. I have definitely gotten better over time!
2) I-cord - This was my first time trying i-cord, just starting the border on the bottom. I'm still not sure I've done it correctly, since I can see the colored yarn peeking out of the corners occasionally. At some point I'm probably going to rip it out and redo it, but I think I'm continue adding squares first.
Lastly, I've started keeping scraps I've already used in the blanket in a small box to be used later on again. I just thought it looked pretty, so I thought I would share.
