Dangles and Lieuvena: Thanks for sharing the great tips!
Dangles, I love the warm colors you've done so far!!!
I love the blue, but I also love the cream.

Here is a LOG CABIN that is in my Ravelry FAVS. It was knit by "sister". If I could afford to knit a log cabin just for me...it would be just like hers:




She used 4 shades of brown Cascade Ecological Wool. Her blanket took 8 skeins total, according to her notebook.

So my 'vote' would be to use the cream as your 4th color...it would create a great monochromatic theme like "sister's", but Lieuvena is right about the blue. It would be a great contrast and 'pop' the blanket!

As I type these words you've prolly already chosen between the two...and I am certain whatever you chose will be great! You have very good taste and a good eye for color!

And you have a great eye for color, too, Lieuvena!

I am working on log#9 now...picked up the 126 stitches last night and did 3 ridges...then just had to quit for the night.

Knit on good women!
