Granny Square Blanket

This is what I crochet when taking the train to work: a small size granny square blanket. Each square measures 12×12″ (30x30cm).

I am usually pretty good in boiling down stash but no matter how hard I try – some skeins seem to last forever. They’re mainly sock yarn in weird color gradients, hardly more than one skein each and I know I will never (ever) use them for anything “real.” However, I wanted to get rid of them AND at the same time I needed some easy crochet or knitting to take along with me. So I decided to make a blanket: 1 ball = 1 square.

This is where I am right now:

However, another two and a half squares and I am done. That will make a nice, small blanket, 47×35″ / 120x90cm.

Have a good weekend.
