In the spirit of Cold Sheep, I looked for ideas for using up my worsted weight scraps en mass (they're the biggest volume I had since I control the fingering weight scarps with hexipuffs.) I hit upon this garter stitch blanket (Ten Stitch Blanket by Frankie Brown), which is great, because you basically just keep adding on until you decide it's done. So I'm just going to keep adding until it gets to a decent size.
So far, I've managed to use up the following: Cascade 220 (green), Quince and Co. Lark in Bark and Chanterelle and Malabrigo Rios in Glazed Carrots and Indieceta. I've got a few others in there as well that had large amounts, but since the beginning makes more sense for smaller blocks of color, I've split those up, and they're not gone yet.
I'm liking this so far. It's easy to memorize, and goes quickly. However, as it grows, I'm not sure how good a summer project it'll be. Might just have to go on hiatus for a bit.
