That's what I thought. A few years ago, I knit a baby blanket. It was made up of individual apple core shapes that I knit using my leftover sock yarn. I enjoyed it. I did find myself getting a little bored with it so that's why I ended up with a baby sized blanket. I still have a few of those apple cores waiting for me to start again.
I saw another blanket that is made of mitered squares. Very pretty but again, I know myself and that won't happen. I do love browsing patterns and I came across Garter Squish blanket. Hmmm, I love garter stitch which is knitting both sides so it's very easy and mindless. This pattern uses 2 strands of worsted weight held together = bulky weight yarn. Well, that's just too warm for SoCal plus I don't have that much worsted weight yarn to make a blanket of use to me. I did notice that several knitters used fingering weight yarn doubled...now you're speaking my language!
So this is one of my long term projects for 2016. It helps that it's quite cold this winter.
I estimate that I'm about a 1/3- 1/2 done with it depending on how long I want this to be. It'll be used as a long lap blanket. For me.
I knit a few hats...
