A project like this only happens once in a lifetime. I used leftover yarn from a 3 year stretch that I like to refer to as the "Sock Vortex" The "sock vortex" is a time in every knitter's life when they knit their first pair of socks, inevitably become obsessed and start only knitting socks. Do keep in mind though that this is only my cotton sock yarn. So perhaps a second once in a lifetime project will embark shortly.
The blanket is a series of modular hexagons knit together. The shape of the hexagon inhibits the blanket to be perfectly square or rectangular. But who said they have to be. I quite like my extra wide coffin shaped concoction.
And I think the boys do too.
