This is some of my sock yarn leftovers. Recently I've been thinking if I should dare to try a long-term project and start knitting either this or this. My very first quilt that I made some 10 years ago was a leftover quilt and we use it a lot. Too bad it's not really big enough for our family of three. I like the look of the Beekeper's quilt blanket much better, but I'm not convinced this is a pattern for a usable blanket. Somehow it looks more like a bedspread and not something I'd want to cuddle under. Many praise it because it is such a portable project - you can work on it one piece at a time. But to me that's a big minus. I know all those little cushions would be all over the place before I have enough to sew them up. It sounds as if I've made up my mind, doesn't it? But the beekeeeper's quilt is soooo pretty! What do you think?
