"How do you eat a whale?" "One bite at a time!"
I am not eating a whale but I am knitting a patchwork blanket and the process feels similar... working on one square at a time, stitch by stitch, slowly making more and more until (eventually! a long time down the road!) there will be a finished blanket.
Here are the mini squares I've knitted in the past couple of months:
Regular readers may remember that I'm knitting these small squares (which are just 10 stitches across) for a picnic blanket with a design that apparently reminds everyone of the video game Tetris :)
That little pile of squares doesn't look like much for "a couple of months" work, but I've only been knitting one or two squares here and there on evenings when I'm watching TV and don't feel like focusing on one of my sewing projects. I'm also only using "leftover" yarn for these small squares - yarn left over from knitting the bigger squares I'm making for this blanket (and other projects).
So, this particular whale is gonna take a long time to eat!
