Although last week wasn’t the most productive for sewing, I did manage to finish the squares for my blanket!
I’m thrilled to have these done but I’m not kidding when I say that my work is not over. Next, I’ll be spending a good amount of time sewing these together and then there is the backing and binding and quilting that will need to be done. I’ll be lucky if I manage to finish before the winter is over!
*edit* I just noticed my title misspelling. I feel awesome.

I started this sock blanket last summer but put it away after about 20 squares to focus on some other projects. I’ve been sewing so much lately that my knitting has been cast aside. Being a beginner, however, means that sewing requires all of my attention and recently I’ve wanted a small, mindless project that I could work on while watching a movie with Kelley. These little squares are the perfect project for this. I’m hoping to have the knitting portion done by September so that I can back and bind the blanket. I think it will make for a beautiful throw this fall/winter.
