Attempt at a Blanket

Quite a long time ago, I wanted to knit a blanked with different coloured yarn squares. I bought eight different colours and white and started knitting the white border. Then I started squares bordered by white. It was horrendous to knit..

It took forever to get as far as I got and I just gave up.

I stopped and started numerous times, but it didn’t really work, I wasn’t into it enough. So eventually, I knit a white border and started trying to get rid of all the yarn ends, there were two ends per colour and two ends for all white separators. It again, took forever to weave in all the ends.

Scarflet Scarflet

This is the result! I do think that it looks nice, but there is just too much work involved to continue to create a full blanket. For now, I might add some buttons and create a little scarflet or something out of it. Or maybe just decorative trim on my chair? Any other bright ideas?

    It already looks long enough to be a table runner…

      Too bad my sewing machines are usually hogging the tables, but it’s definitely an idea for when I might organize my house!
