I'm beginning to think that blankets are my new socks.
If that makes no sense to you, do you remember when everyone was like "pink is the new black"? I don't know if anyone ever said that, but you've probably heard something similar. I said I'd never knit a pair of socks and I did; maybe bed-sized blankets are my new impossible. Theoretically one day I'll finish the crapghan, but that's not something I'm going to put out where company can see.
So what does a commitment-phobe like me need? Oh, I know! A blanket you can make in small increments. (We'll pretend that I would have the motivation to sew all the squares together. Shh. It's better when we pretend.) Frankie Brown's Ravelry-only pattern, Pathways Blanket, is really cool because the pattern totally depends on how you sew it together. If you'd prefer to see a blanket in action, check out Knitting Up A Storm's blog post. Now that's a blanket you can pull out when company comes over.
I would never be able to pick one pattern for this blanket. I guess I really did find my new socks.
