First up, my "random squares" blanket:
This one was quite tricky to photograph because some of the colours in it are so dark the auto settings on my camera freak out a bit and make the picture much brighter than it really is... but I got there in the end! It hangs quite a way down one side in the photos simply because the bed is up against the wall - it's actually the perfect size to slightly overhang a single bed on both sides, covering a single duvet nicely.
The starting point for this blanket was a pile of squares I knitted when I was a teenager (which was a while ago - I'm in my early 30s now!) and I've spent a couple of years gradually using up leftover balls of double-knit yarn to make more squares to match.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out! I was worried about the dark colours looking a bit depressing and/or it looking a bit strange having some very pale squares in the mix, but actually I think the colours look rather fab together.
And second, here's the blanket I knitted from all the yarn I had left over from making my sky blanket:
As you can see, it's smaller than the other blanket and perhaps a little bit too small for the bed, but it'll make a great sitting-on-the-sofa-during-chilly-evenings blanket.
