As my stash is not really loaded with bright colors(which Diva is all about) I had to get a few skeins of stuff to brighten up her Barn Raising Blanket which I'm thinking will actually turn into the TV room Barn Raising Blanket--meaning it's for her, DH, and Rage--we'll see how that one goes over later. Otherwise I'll need to make a couple more blankets at some point(and no they probably won't all be this pattern).
There are 4 skeins of ShiBuiKnits Sock and 1 skein of Pagewood Farm Hand Dyed Sock yarn(the cotton candy pink one).
Why I love the Barn Raising Quilt:
**I have been wanting something to do with my sock yarn leftovers and my substantial sock yarn stash.
**the squares are easy to knit--perfect for knitting group knitting and TV time.
**the squares are portable
**it's fun to see how sock yarn patterns when it's used this way
**it is something that will last longer than a sock does
**it's something everyone can see, whereas sometimes socks are under wraps(or pants as the case may be).
**it gave me a great place to showcase my STR stash which my DH greatly enhanced when he gave me a big old gift certificate last Christmas
