Also underway, and likely to stay that way for a very long time, is a project designed to use up all those little bits of leftover yarn that you have once you've finished a pair of socks.
The project comes from the Heathen Housewife, where you can find complete instructions. I'm omitting the i-cord edging (only because I hate doing i-cord - I think it would look great). Instead, I think I'll crochet a round or two of dcs.
I'm planning on only using leftovers from socks I've made, although I've got leftovers of some other similar weight yarn that I might end up adding in at some stage. At the moment, I think I have about enough sock leftovers for about a third of a blanket.
