I have a few relatively small projects on the go, but will still have a huge stash of umpteen different colours to use up.
I’ve previously made a couple of scarves for Knit For Peace, a very simple pattern of 280 sts, one garter st row in each colour, knitted on a circular needle for about 7 inches, but not in the round, ends trimmed and made into tassels. Relatively quick and certainly very easy - mindless TV knitting!
Now wondering whether it’d work for the kind of blanket K for P want, at least 50 x 70 inches. The 280 st count would work for the width.
On similar lines, last year I made a much smaller ‘rainbow’ blanket for Gdcs but in 4 sections, with knitted strips over each join, to save the right side joins looking messy.
So a big blanket would need several sections, otherwise obviously incredibly heavy and unwieldy to work with.
I’ve ordered a longer circular needle, so might just get going on it soon, in order to have it ready for winter.
I did start a multi-coloured ‘squares’ blanket a while ago, but the prospect of trying to make so many non-messy-looking joins put me off before I’d done much - I won’t be trying one of those again.
