I really have no idea what I'm doing, I'm just making it up as I go!
Lieuvena! Your log cabin is looking great! Your pattern stitch is nice and even! The picked up rows look very neat and well-arranged, too!

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to post the progress that I have made on my crib blanket. I have completed four blocks. I also made a color chart to help myself.

Very well organized, Dreamsheryl! Thanks for posting your progress! I like your logs! Good colors!

I am working on log#6, have about 10 ridges done...but didn't get as far today as I'd like. I had to take a quick sidetrip and knit myself an emerald green cabled scarf to wear with my Jenny Cloche. I about froze to death today when DH and I were out and about. I needed a scarf!

I will get the scarf finished within about 4 hours from now...and will finish log#6 tomorrow and prolly log#7 as well.

Knit knit knit!

Hugs,

Artlady

I CO my blanket today. I had to recover from being awake for more than 60 hours (long story plus traveling back to Hawaii) and finish up my section of an Oddball Blanket before I could start a new project. I am using Bernat Softee in Bongo Blue, White, Baby Blue, & Funny Prints -- the blanket will be for a friend who was due February 5, but will probably be induced this week because her water broke.

Thanks for all the hints & suggestions!

Here is a little photo demonstration on how I pick up stitches using a bamboo crochet needle:


Here is a photo of how I use stitch markers across the 'pick up row' to keep track of sets of 10. It prevents me having to double back a million times and counting stitches til I'm bleary-eyed!

This is my first KAL and I'm glad I don't have to finish within one month as I'm committed to my Central Park Hoody, which I started New Years Day. I'm going to find that thread shortly.

I've completed 3 sections in bright Christmas colors and I'm now hoping it won't be too bright but I really want to de-stash the brights. I'll attempt to post pics later today.

Everyones pics look great.

Thanks for starting this KAL and thread.

This is what I have done so far. The first photo is how it was when I dragged it out of storage. the second is what it looks like today.

I have 6 skeins of Caron Simply soft brites. Teal, blue, purple, pink, yellow and lime. The centre patch is made using the Teal, the other five colours are used going around. I will carry on till I run out of yarn and use the Teal to finish it off. It is very bright but Maisey loves it so that is OK.

Karina- I love the colors on your blanket!

I've gotten absolutely nothing done for the last 2 days. My 11 month old DD is just too sick. Today isn't looking too good either. She's still sick and we start back up with school after the holiday break (I home school my other 3 kiddos-all boys) I will be trying to squeak some knitting time in there if I can.

I how everyone's blankets are turning out.

Lieuvena - I hope your daughter feels better soon. With homeschooling 3 boys I can imagine that you need the knitting just to keep sane.
