The blanket continues to be coming along quite nicely. This month I knit 47 squares for a total of 684. I've added the final big black square on the right hand side and am slowly making my way across the top of the blanket. I didn't complete all the i-chord on the top edge but can quickly be knit next month when there is more i-chord to knit. I'm not sure how many squares are left to do - my estimate is 30.
I will still have about four gallon sacks of sock yarn remnants leftover from this project so I'm very glad I discovered the "Frankensocks" pattern.
