Finishing the Blog Blanket

July 2019 frame yarn 1.jpg

I have been playing around with my 40 (5x8) small squares knitted with inspiration from my blog posts.
First consideration was which colour to bind and frame the many squares.

In the end, I settled for a silver grey as to not make the overall impression of the blanket too dark.

Next step and more difficult is to decide which order all my squares are to be knitted together?

First possibility: Random order. I took randomly one square at a time from a crumbled pile.

Second possibility would be to do something a bit more colour coordinated. I have tried two versions here.

Finally, as a third option, I have laid them all out in chronological order, as I knitted the squares throughout the past three years (January 2016 - December 2018).

Now it is time to study these photos a bit more and then take a decision. It is not a summer knit to sit with a large blanket in my lap so plenty of time for considering the flow before knitting them all up in the autumn.
