Dissertation Survival #2: sanity squares

knitting on the uni bus - a sure-fire way to keep the seat next to you free 

 Perhaps you remember this post where I stated my intention to knit a higgledy piggledy Weasley-inspired blanket?  Well, I haven't neglected this venture.  I've been slowly but surely knitting little squares while I'm out and about.  When the deadlines get too much, it's so great to be able to seize the knitting in your bag and  rattle off a square.  Not quite hit your word count yet?  Well, at least you're one step closer to that blanket.  Every time I get stuck I knit a row.  It's keeping me sane, hence sanity squares.  


 

Here's how I've got on so far.  I'm making use of odds and ends in my yarn hamper, knitting a mix of moss stitch, brick and lace.  



My aim is to have a blanket finished by the time I move out in July.  What's keeping you sane during deadline days?

  2. Oooh, nice. I have a huge crocheted blanket on the go but am not making much progress currently, too many distractions! It's quite cosy making a blanket that's all in one as you get to sit under it as you make it, but it does mean you have find all your balls of wool when you want to stand up to go to the loo :/
    I've been considering granny squares but I don't think my tension is up to it yet!
