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.
