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.
