By the time the blanket is finished, it'll be three rows bigger and the warmest, cosiest blanket ever thanks to each of the squares being knitted with two squares of DK yarn. It's the perfect size for a single bed (I measured one of my favourite blankets as a guide when I was planning what size squares to knit) and only overhangs the side so much in these photos cos the bed is up against the wall.
I'm determined to keep up to date with knitting the squares / sewing them together / weaving in the ends so I can get the blanket finished as close to the end of the year as possible. It's been a little tricky working on it recently though as the cats have been a bit freaked out by Bonfire Night -related fireworks, so they've been keeping close and demanding lots of cuddles and cats + yarn = always a dangerous combination!
The last square itself will be for the 25th December - it would've been lovely to include all the days of the year but alas, 366 doesn't divide neatly into a blanket-suitable quantity of squares! And Christmas day is a pretty nice day to finish my knitted year with, I guess :)
