Trip Blankets 2014

Now that I finally got a camera again I took pics of our trip blankets as of the end of 2014.  I would say to current but I am 3 blocks behind so far for the year so it is only 2014 progress.

I last blogged about them here.  But, what they are is every important moment or trip we go on I buy a skein of sock yarn to add a block to each persons blanket.  Someday my kids are going to go out on their own and this way they will have something to remember all those times we spent together.  Ok and then I don't have to buy some crappy t-shirt or something on every trip.

I will start in age order so D's is up first.  He has 59 blocks now.  All of the pattern links are on the old blog post and on my Ravelry page so I am going to skip those this time.



Next would be mine.  I am also at 59 blocks.



K is at 49 because we make some trips while the boys are at their dads and others were done while K was at scouting things.



G is at 51 blocks so not that much farther than K.



Last but not least bringing up the rear is Z.  Hers was started 2 years after the boys so she only has 21 squares.  For just having it a little over a year I would say that she is doing well.



So there you have it the 2014 trip blanket photos.  Now that I have those out of the way I can start on the 13 blocks that I am behind on lol.
