I'm afraid I'll have to drop out (before I'm even started). I haven't got enough time for such a large project and I won't be ready before the end of this year. The blanket will happen eventually, but I'm afraid not yet. Have fun with this KAL.

I like #1 & 2 as well, Dangles!

I haven't even had time to sort through my yarn yet and I'll be gone over the weekend. I'll get a late start, but better late than never.

Lieke..there are no rules about this. If it takes you two years that's fine, too.

I'd love to join this KAL. I've never done log cabin before or participated in a KAL so this is a 2 for 1 for me!

I think I'm going to do the regular log cabin with the center block and surrounding strips. I've only been knitting for about 6 months so not much of a stash here. I do have some Vanna's Choice and Caron's Simply Soft I can use to start one with. Don't know how long it'll take me to get one done though. I homeschool my kids and we're getting ready to start up again, so I can only knit here and there. But this actually seems like a great project for that.

I love the Modern Log Cabin, but don't have nice coordinating yarn for it. I figure with the strips I can just grab a color and go, because none of my yarns seem to match! Should be a rather interesting blanket indeed! I'll either give it to my kids or my mom. Kids and parents are obligated to like whatever "ugly" things I make!

I wonder if a crochet blanket would be allowed? I have a lot of Caron one pounder and would love to use it up but think I'll do better with crochet afghan.

Room for one more?

I've just started a log cabin blanket, not following a pattern or anything, just making it up as I go along. Hopefully a KAL will give me the push I need to keep going.

I decided to start a small sample just to make sure I understand how to do it and I have a question about picking up the stitches. I have no problem on the side where I slip the first and purl the last stitches, but when I get to a bind off side it's really difficult for me to pick up stitches. Are there any tips to make this easier? Could I bind off with a larger needle? TIA for any suggestions!
