Scrap Yarn Granny Squares

I was going to share some pictures of my scarf today, which is properly finished at last, but the weather just isn’t cooperating with that plan.  It is horribly grey outside, and so the photos will just have to wait for another day.  Instead I thought I would share with you the little bit of crafting that I do on my commute.

Five little granny squares!  They are each about 10cm across, and part of a grand blanket scheme.  Whenever I knit socks I always have some yarn left over (or a lot of yarn left over if they were made for my smaller-footed relatives), but never quite enough for another pair of socks.  I couldn’t waste such a precious crafty resource and so put it to good use making these granny squares.  My eventual plan is to make a blanket, but I think I’m going to have to knit a lot more socks first!

I like to make them whilst I’m commuting above anything else, particularly anything knitted, because I find it a lot easier to only have one hook to worry about when I’m on public transport.  Is it just me, or are double pointed needles fiendishly difficult to keep hold of whilst on moving vehicles?  I can also pack quite a few scraps and a hook into a little coin purse, making the whole thing quite easy to fit into my handbag – I can’t think of anything else I make that would pack up so small.
