For a few years now, any time I've had a small ball of yarn left over from a knitting project I've used it to knit mini moss stitch squares. I didn't have a plan for what I was going to use the squares for, but knitting them seemed like a good first step towards turning my leftover yarn into something useful. Waste not, want not, right?
Well, yesterday I finally made a start on turning my stash of squares into something - a little patchwork blanket that I can use for picnics and afternoons spent sitting out in the garden.
I'm sewing the squares together in little groups of two, three, four or five...
... and then stitching the knitted shapes together to create a random patchwork of colours and shapes.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the design develop organically as I add more squares!
Not super excited about sewing in all the yarn ends though... ugh.
