FO: City Tweed LOG CABIN Blanket
 
Well, D-O-N-E! Phew! Will never do that again! But, wait! Isn't that also what I said after I delivered baby 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5? :teehee:

Anyways, 24 skeins and 3,992 yards later...I am finally done with this LOG CABIN blanket!

The blanket started with a "TOAD" rectangle, then the "logs" commenced with "SNOWSHOE"...then "COTTONTAIL...then"TABBY"...and then back to "TOAD", etc.

Here is the yardage of each color:
TOAD: 774 yds
SNOWSHOE: 888 yds
COTTONTAIL: 1,081 yds
TABBY: 1,249 yds


Size 8 needle created a nice thick cushy blanket. A Rav knitter that inspired me used a US11. I'm sure his blanket went much more quickly than mine did!

This is my WILDERNESS blanket, to be used to-and-fro from the MOUNTAINS...and in the mountains as well!

63"w X 71"h

Lovely Lovely job!! Can I be your house guest and sleep under that nice blanket??
Did you bind off and pick up stitches or did you hold live stitches??
Great info on the yardage.

5 kids!! Much harder than knitting.

After baby #5...I actually became pregnant with #6...but alas...it wasn't meant to be. That little one died before birth. No more since then. None of our children have more than 3. Most just have 2. That is a nice family size!

It's 63" wide by 71" long. So...good "nap" size! :teehee: I'm 60" tall...so it will cover me good. No cold tootsies!
