Sock Blanket Saturday

We are up to 20 squares in 17 weeks.

That's not including the two squares I will only use in an emergency such as a shortage of sock yarn worldwide.  Introducing Thing 1 and Thing 2.

There's nothing really wrong with these squares.  Thing 1 has a lovely shade of aqua.

And Thing 2 is mainly in the same color family.

But looking through my rainbow colored glasses where do you place these squares?  Put Thing 1 in with the purples and the red all sticks out.  Stick it in the reds and the purple over rules everything.  I'm not even going to try placing it in the green or blues where it would most definitely be a sore thumb.   And Thing 2 knitted second, slightly overcomes those issues, but that pink just throws a monkey wrench in to everything.

I'm holding these squares out until the very end, wouldn't you?

You're totally right- as usual. I'd do the exact same thing. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product!

Your square are knitted so neatly! I started a sock yarn blanket last week but haven't achieved your neatness yet!
