Log Cabin Baby Blankets for Charity
I'm still in.

Here's the list of log cabiners: debinoz, larudden, HollyP, kellycarr05. Do any of you have log cabin blankets? I think most of them are being held hostage somewhere .

Are you all still interested in doing log cabins or should we just throw our lot in with the big group? Please let me know ASAP, so a decision can be made.

This is a volunteer thing for a good cause, so whatever you feel you can do, not should do, but can do is wonderful. And if you can't anymore, that's okay, too. Just please communicate!

I'm not nagger and I assume that if someone says they'll do something they will. I also know life gets in the way and sometimes we can't follow through on what we thought we could. That's okay, too. Just communicate!

Thanks for handling the Log Cabin blankets, yarnlady!

Here's the model photo of a Log Cabin Baby Blanket, in case anyone wants to see what they will end up looking like:


I'll forward anyone over here that asks about the blankets. If I get any from lissalue, I'll forward them wherever you say. Just send me a message to let me know who can take them.

Here are all the photos I've had for the Log Cabin blankets. Maybe they will help you figure out where they all might be:

I'm still in, too. I don't have any of them, and most I did work on were still in the very early stages. How many were there? I know there was the original 5, then I think there were 2 more started because two were mia. I know the one sent to me finally arrived, but I don't know about the other.

I'm still in too if we choose to continue. I started two and sent them to Debinoz. I received 2 and sent them to KellyCarr awhile ago. That's the last I have heard or seen on any of them!
Here are the last ones I had

Well, I'm going to assume, at this point in time, that those blankets are goners. If they show up somewhere then we've lucked out, if not......

We can start again now or wait till after the holidays. I'm doing a lot of Christmas knitting now on a deadline, so personally, I'd like to wait.

What do you all think?

Hello Log Cabin Knitters!
Just wanted to let you all know that I heard from Snowbear, and she is okay. She said that she's had a hard time, but she has survived. I'll let you all know more as I hear about it.

Looks like we are gearing up to knit log cabin baby blankets sometime between Christmas and New Years. If you are interested in helping us out, please send me an IM, e-mail with your name address, e-mail, do you want to crochet and/or blankets, Ravelry ID if you have one.

This is done as a Round Robin. Each person starts a blanket and mails it on. When a blanket is received, another section is added and mailed on.

More information about log cabin knitting.

For The Knitters
Let me preface these instructions by saying because I know what I'm doing, I may leave out a vital piece of information you need. Please ask questions if you are unsure.

Each of us will start a center square for the blanket. It'll need to be at least 6 inches on the shortest side. The square is bound off and the last loop left open for people to work from. Cut your yarn off, leaving the loop and a six to eight inch tail.

The square will be mailed to the person below you on the mailing list. They will place the square in front of her with the loop in the upper left corner, insert a needle in the loop and pick up the sts down the left side of the square. Knit at least six inches, bind off and mail on. This will continue round the circle of knitters, each adding a stripe on one side. That creates the log cabin effect.

Yarn used will acrylic ww like Red Heart Super Saver, Carron, Vanna's Choice, etc. Whatever you have in your stash. These are suppose to help us use stash up, so don't feel a need to match color schemes, etc. Just keep it ww acrylic. Put a note in with your square letting the next knitter know what size needle was used. This is the best way we can try to match guage.

When the blanket gets to the person on the list before the starter of that blanket, we'll determine if it's big enough and where it's to be sent. Everyone is invited to suggest a place to send the blanket(s). They don't all have to go to the same place and we'll work down the list of charities and start at the top again.

Now this is the lecture part: Please stay in touch with us. (You can post at Knittinghelp.com, Ravelry, or use e-mail. Life happens and we all have to take a break, etc., so just let us know. If you can't knit on a blanket, please send it on and do two sections on the next one. This isn't to be a chore but a gift of time and knitting. If you are holding blankets it deprives the rest of us from doing our part. If at any time it's too much, just let us know and you can quit or go on stand by. We'll start out with loose mailing dates of on or about the 1st and 15th of each month. Our first mailing will be January 15th.

We only ask you to do what you can, and if you can't let us know. Easy peasy.

Thanks and welcome to you all. If you have questions, please ask! As has been said numerous times by numerous people, there are NO dumb questions except the one not asked!
