May the Force be with you!

Well, he's not actually a yarn bowl, but I've always wanted one and he works just fine.  This Yoda goblet is intended as a drinking cup .... but its got no handle, is fragile and hand wash only ... sounds like an accident waiting to happen to me.

So instead, he's going to sit safe and sound in my craft room and only be used for keeping my yarn under control with powers of the Force.

Uurrgghh!  I haven't been very good about blogging this year!

Anyway.  I found this pattern (well its more of a suggestion) a long, long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away ... sorry, I had to) for a sock yarn blanket by Shelly Kang.

This is two days worth of squares (minimal time invested).  These squares are so addictive!  I cannot stop making them!  I am hoping that I can make several a month and possibly have a blanket by the end of the year.  

If you would like to donate to my sock yarn blanket with any left overs you don't have a use for, please contact me (see sidebar right or leave a comment).  Each square is only about 2g of yarn ... so we're talking about the stuff you would usually toss!
