LOG CABIN

I have been looking at the Log Cabin Blanket in the Mason Dixon book and drooling. I have seen the multitude of blogged Log Cabin's in various stages from center strip to finished and blocked and it was just a matter of time before I started one of my own. In my stash I had some wonderful Mission Falls 1824 Cotton that I had purchased two summers ago to knit a pleasant cardi, just never got around to it, then last month I saw Connie's finished Log Cabin knitted in 1824 and decided that was the impetuses I needed to spur me on. I ordered some 1824 from Connie and rest I needed from Rams Wool (they had a wonderful two day sale last week - 30% off everything in stock). The cotton arrived yesterday, along with 8 balls of Kueryon to finish the Lizard Ridge from Knitty (I am 12 of the 24 squares already knitted). Now I have to finish two pairs of socks, 2 charity hats, 1 pair of mittens, and two knitted hearts before I can start, will I last you ask, I doubt it and you will probably see pictures next week of started Log Cabin. I love my choice of colours - what do you think? I am still abiding by the Stash Knitting rule, this was yarn I needed to finish a project I had already started or was about to start.

What a bounty of 1824, your blog is becoming yarn porn! I cannot resist such temptation, I went and bought a skein of the lentil last night, but I was also still abiding by the rules. Happy knitting!

Hi Isobel, Thank you for your comments on my blog.
The colours you have picked for your log cabin blanket look wonderful. I'll look forward to seeing it's progression.
