Halfway

 I am halfway done with this little scrap sock yarn blanket!
I have used 50 different yarns in the70 squares so far.
I am knitting on 2.5mm needles with a 40 stitch square.
Very enjoyable to make these little squares and since I pick up and knit them to their neighbor, there is no sewing them together!
 I was halfway right about this two-colored blooming angel trumpet-
 The outside of the bloom is yellow-
the outside of the funnel part stays yellow but
The incredible peachy pink color stole the show and I missed the yellow on the first bloom!
I love learning to see colors better-I think my seeing (not visually but mentally)
is in direct training with my watercolor painting.
It spills over into so many areas of my life now!

  4. Wow the scrap blanket is fabulous. I don't understand the method of knitting them very much, but the thought of all those ends is sort of a deterrent for me. But since you pick up and knit. hmm. Maybe one day! That last photo is VERY nice!
