I'm still thoroughly enjoying the POP blanket squares. I think it's the Noro Silk Garden that is keeping me amused. I love how the colour changes seem subtle, but show up quite nicely in these squares.
I'm using 3 or 4 different colourways of Noro Silk Garden - I started with two when I started the blanket, but when I (quickly) decided to make this a full size blanket rather than a baby or lap blanket, I dug around and found a few more balls of Silk Garden hanging around. I love the mix of colours and tones it is creating.
Above is 34 squares (now at 35), and I think this is about a quarter of the blanket size I want. I'm still on the first skein of the Cascade Eco Wool (the black border wool), and I have 2 more of the black and 2 of a dark grey. I haven't decided if I'm going to randomly add some grey squares or build a pattern. (I can hear Nancy right now - PATTERN! ORDER! NO RANDOM!) I think I will have to wait and see once I get all the squares done. I get the feeling it may take as much time to place the squares as it will to sew them together.
This is not a short term project...
