Blanket progress

Although I've worked up a few small projects in the meantime, I've made great progress on my Mondrian-inspired scraps blanket:

I'm not only happy to be using up so many spare skeins and partial skeins, but am delighted in how it's looking--it's so much fun picking out the colors, and I'm enjoying the surprise of how they look together, and how the black borders set off the colors.  There is also the joy of remembering the projects that used the rest of the yarn--the lavender was a vest, the bright orange baby pants and a baby sweater, the dark brown a hat for a friend...

Happy memories, happy knitting, and much stash reduction!
