All Gone

Finally.  Every last scrap and leftover part ball of sock yarn has been used up.  I feel like Wonder Woman, truly, I do.  How, you may ask?  Take one 3mm crochet hook.  Start a granny square.  Keep going until you run out of yarn.  It works.  Actually, I made 2 medium squares, joined them, then went back to crocheting round after round after round.  The idea is to make this blanket fit a twin bed, eventually.  Since I've finally used up the leftovers, I may have to dig out the box of sock yarn and see if there are any single balls in there that won't go far enough for a complete pair of socks.  This is one of those projects I don't want to be looking at 2 years from now, and shaking my head, wondering what I was thinking.  I have a hideous amount of ends to weave in still, but for now, I am SO NOT inspired to tackle them. It's too dark now to take photos of the blanket but I will show proof soon.

Update:  Yarn Diet still intact, Fabric Diet not so much.  Actually, when I was in the store, I completely talked myself out of the fabric diet.  I am very persuasive apparently.  But it was just a tiny little fall down, merely 2m.  That's forgivable, right?

I am really impressed! I have been working on what I call the forever afghan and adding scraps as I finish projects.

Now - do we March Sweater Madness and generate scraps in another weight?
