now what do I do with my sock yarn leftovers?

This has been my longest UFO, ever. (Unless you count that vest I started when I was 10 or 11 and is probably still sitting in pieces in my parents' basement... but let's not.) Started May 25, 2009 (according to ravelry, anyway), this blanket has been worked on in multiple countries, and through both good and bad times in my life.

never ending blanket
It is comprised of the ends of many a skein of sock yarn (3 held together at a time on size 7.5mm needles), and is big enough to fit comfortably on our queen sized bed.

Of course, there will always be more ends of more skeins of sock yarn (because I'm definitely not done making socks), so I'll just have to find another never ending project to use them up...
