I have recently started knitting Bobby's Garden Blanket. It is a project I can pick up at any time depending on how busy I am and what else I am knitting. This is a project that I am doing on 2.75mm double pointed needles. Even though it is at an early stage it is large enough to showcase.
I started the project on 4mm needles but decided that I was not happy with how tight the stitches were and so decided to use smaller needles. At the moment I can still take the project with me in my project bag but soon it will be too big and will be a project that I can only work on at home.
This blanket is something that I have been wanting to do for quite a while. I began knitting a sock yarn blanket using squares, but I prefer the geometry of the hexagons. For anyone who has small amounts of leftover yarn from other projects, this project is a fantastic way to use up those small amounts. I have been very careful to try and coordinate the colours of the yarn that I use for each hexagon so that the colours flow.
What's on your needles? Any long term projects like this one?
