Overall I would say that my actual stash isn't too impressive, especially not when compared to those who have posted in the Flash Your Stash 2012 Ravelry board. But during my undergraduate years I have accumulated a large amount of scraps and would ideally like to use as much of that yarn as possible before the end of the year.
About a month ago I decided that I wanted to construct a blanket of some kind with those scraps, but I wasn't sure how I wanted to construct it. Then I looked at this old family quilt (one of three that my great grandmother made) and was inspired to make a kind of patchwork blanket!
I haven't gotten too far yet, I'm frequently sidetracked in my other knitting projects, but whenever I want some mindless knitting this is my go-to activity.
Each square is around 5'' on each side, using seed stitch to give the blanket some texture. Already I'm starting to make a dent in my scrap collection! This is also a lot of fun because I get to revisit yarns that I haven't worked with for a while.
