A few years ago the lovely MrsFlibble made a sock blanket for her daughter. I've been wanting to do something similar for quite a while.
I went through my sock drawer and any that had holes in or had been previously repaired got sent to the blanket fund.

I cut the tops with the pictures into 2, one for each side. I used the elastic tops as hair bands, and the foot also got cut into 2.

Then, i patchworked them together really simply in squares. I had 51 pieces (some of the bottoms had really gone too far to use). So i made a 10x5 thing. It's too small to be a blanket, and too small for a rug. I plan to add to it whenever I do a sock drawer clearout.

The whole thing

Some detail

More detail.

I hope eventually to make it big enough to back with rug backing for the floor. I think it'll make an interesting rug.

What fun! I'll bet it will be so comfy to walk on. I can't wait to see the finished product!

Thank you.

I think it'll be a long while til it's finished. I'm giving it an on-going status at the moment - I haven't got any socks to add to it yet.

It is a cute idea. A lot of childrens socks are funny and pretty, and a lot of memories can be hidden in such a blanket.
