WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along

rainbow throw
It's been a while since I've participated in WIPW or Yarn Along. I've been a knitting my little heart out, but haven't been sharing here on the blog. Instagram has taken over! But I've promised myself I'm going to get back to blogging. I even did 2 posts yesterday. And now today's post. See - progress already!

I'm right in the middle of Christmas knitting, but that didn't stop me from starting a new project. A patchwork garter throw in rainbow colors - my Rainbow Throw! This will be a year long project - a square a day. Normally people start a one a day project with the new year, but whenever I do that, I never finish. I think it's the New Year sabotage, so I decided to start early and just maybe I will stick to it. It's just a square a day, right? I can do that! I have 2 squares done already! I'm on a roll!!!

I probably won't be making 365 squares, but not sure how many I'm making. I want my blanket big enough to wrap up in, so however many squares it takes to get to that size.

I even have pretty rainbow needles to keep me motivated.
