Thanks MamaDawn! That is a really nice pattern! I saved it in my knitting folder, that's for sure!
Well, gang, I am done with logs 1-10. As I look at it, I can see that my lighter yarns are all bunched up on the right side...and the darker colors are all bunched up on the left side...hey...who cares? This isn't being entered in a contest at the State Fair!
I really like it, and I only used Stash Yarn! I used up all the pink, teal green, rainbow variegated, and almost all the purple variegated. Plus, used some plain cream for one side of log#9. I put some stripes every 11th row to jazz it up a bit. I've had these orphaned skeins for years and years.
Now, I gotta decide on a border. Hmmm.
I have some cream worsted weight that is on the shiny side. I forget the name of it. Something like Simply Soft. I have enough to do all 4 sides.
Oh BTW: the 'picture frame' mitered border recommends 4 garter ridges before casting off...and you increase at each end of every RS row, using the Kf&b increase in the end stitch. The increases crease the angle which will give the mitered look.
I gotta really think about my border. Will cream be weak looking? I know that a darker color (like the pink) would frame it best. But, I only have a ball of pink the size of an orange. Not enough to count. Shoot.
Well, this IS a STASHGHAN...so there is no buying of yarn for the border. I'd prolly end up with half a skein left to add to Stash!
Log#10 is at the top. I made it more than 18 ridges. I kept knitting til the rainbow variegated ran out. I like how my purple variegated 'pooled' into triangle shapes! Like argyle!
