I've now pretty much run out of suitable chunky wool from my stash, and I was hoping that the 25 squares I've knitted already would be enough for my patchwork blanket. I just tried laying out all the squares on the bed to see how big the blanket would be - the answer, nowhere near big enough. I'll just have to shelve this project for the time being and keep my fingers crossed that eventually I'll come across enough wool at a car boot or a charity shop to make at least 10 more squares. I think it'll look OK when it is eventually finished, although I do have some vague ideas about prettying it up by adding some felt flowers to some of the plain coloured square. I'll see, I've got to finish the darned thing first!
