Ok, so here we are! January 1, 2009!
The "planning" thread has been closed...we can't post in it anymore, however, you might like to read the notes
that everyone posted. It was suggested that we close the planning thread and begin the actual KAL with fresh new thread.
The seamless blanket project can be worked in two ways:
1) the Log Cabin style
2) the Traditional Blocks/Squares style (using intarsia technique across the rows that removes the need to seam the blocks together)
Also, you can use up similar weights of STASH YARN, making your blanket into what I affectionately call a "seamless stashghan"! Many of our knitters are down with using up stash yarn, but others will purchase "on sale" yarn!
Whatever floats your boat!
It should be made clear that this blanket doesn't have to be completed during the month of January. Many of you have other projects rolling, and cannot devote your undivided attention to the seamless blanket project! That's ok! Some of us just don't have enough stash yarn to finish the blanket...and that's ok, too! You can add rows and blocks to this blanket as stash yarn becomes available to you!
The Log Cabin
free pattern (two sizes, two styles) is located here.
Of course, the intarsia method for the Traditional Blocks/Squares
style blanket is demonstrated here in Amy's video clips.
I began my Log Cabin (the Moderne baby blanket) this morning while DH and I were watching HANCOCK on OnDemand!
I am using worsted weight acrylics, and a US8 needle.
OK, then! Let's roll!
