A granny square rainbow – 5KCBWDAY3

Granny Square Rainbow

Granny Square Rainbow

I knit an awful lot of socks, which means I have an awful lot of leftover sock yarn.  One day I decided to embark on making a granny square blanket with all my leftovers.  Only, as it turns out, my leftovers weren’t as extensive as they first appeared.  Pictured here are all the squares I have made so far, a grand total of 135.  The only problem is that I need 252 for the blanket I have designed, so there’s a lot of sock knitting in my future!

I am particularly short on orange and purple for some reason.  Does anybody have a favourite purple or orange colourway?  I’d love to hear some ideas – the orange in particular seems difficult to find, but maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places.

    One of the very few orange things I’ve made used Cascade Yarns Heritage Paints in a color called Fall Foliage 9801: shades of orange with occasional bursts of olive green. There are so many purple yarns out there that I wouldn’t even know where to begin to list them!
