ScrapHappy November 2019

This month’s scrappy creation is a continuation of last month’s. I am progressing through the balls of left-over 4-ply yarn, and have gone from these 25 squares:


October’s squares

To these 120:

Lots more over the past month

As you can see, there are now some brighter colours, so the final blanket should be quite vibrant. I will almost certainly have to buy the black yarn to edge all the squares with, but it will be a mostly scrappy project. For the time being, however, I still have some coloured yarn in my basket to keep me going:


More scraps to use


I’ve been inspired to write this (and future) ScrapHappy posts by Kate,  Tall Tales from Chiconia. On the fifteenth of every month lots of other folks often publish a ScrapHappy post, do check them out:

  1. If you have to buy black yarn, I think it counts, as you’ll almost certainly have some left over to use for the next project! This is coming along well, I’m looking forward to seeing a layout.

  2. That is a lot of squares. I don’t envy you the joining up as I’m doing that at the moment and not enjoying it much and I only have 48 squares.


  3. That is a goodly pile of colourful squares, it’s going to be a wonderful blanket.

    That represents a lot of socks Mrs Snail! I shall look forward to seeing the finished blanket. Is it for you or to give away?


  5. Impressive production of squares there.


  6. Wow you’ve been productive!!


  7. Wow! That’s quite an increase in one month!


  8. I made a similar sort of blanket, decades ago and used black yarn as the outliner, including around the finished edge. It is single bed size and I still have it…but it has a massive hole in a side portion – but I’ve never mended it because it reminds me what can happen….actually I don’t know what happened, but I had sneaky feeling at the time the ex-dh made it happen, he swore black and blue, it was the washing machines’ fault…
