For my Craft Challenge 2010, I made a couple of small projects, and then I was ready for something a little more substantial. And I know I said I wouldn't do a blanket right away, but I found a pattern that is knit in the round, so you end up with a double thick blanket and you don't have to worry about the ends, or a purl side, or even how long your yarn is - although they recommend 36" and longer. (Pattern details on Ravelry, I'm "wayoutwear")
So I started this blanket as a stash busting project for the yarns that I don't know what else to make with. As well, this is a fabulous TV watching project as there is no pattern and no counting - just mindless TV knitting.
Oh yeah, one more thing - for funsies, Jp's been picking the colours and the sequence, so when I finish a ball, I bring him the bags of yarns to choose from and he picks the next two colours/yarns. So I never know what will happen next either!
