As mentioned earlier, I really miss not having a blanket on the needles. After searching for a few weeks to determine my next afghan/blanket project, I settled on the Beekeeper's Quilt. I plan to knit up my partial skeins of sock yarn into hexis and then dig into sock yarn stash. Here is the start of my quilt.
They are a lot bigger than I thought they would be. After you stuff them, they are nice and fluffy. The pattern is super easy to remember, so after just a few you no longer have to reference the pattern. The designer is right--it is a great take along project. I really like the ease of just the two active DPNs, too.
