Here is my progress on the Jamaican Log Cabin!
I am calling it that cuz the color palette reminds me of
Jamaica! The garter stitch is a very heavy texture, using the US 11 needle.
I'm using 7 colors. Below are 6 of them. The lightest gold is not Gjestal Naturgarn No. 1 wool. It is Manos Del Uruguay, but I think I can make it work gaugewise. I don't have a concrete color plan for the individual logs beyond what you see. I'm just gonna feel my way along. It was hard to plan these colors on paper.
2-Tomato, 1-Plum, 2-Cypress, 2-Squash, 1-Banana, 1-Blueberry, and 7 Pumpkin
used double stranded cuz it's dk weight. The red looks more Christmas-y but it isn't. Reds are had to photograph accurately, and I just didn't have time to try different digital techniques with it.
The red block is 7"x6". The piece you see is 27"x27" so far.
Did I say that this blanket is for me? Who else in the world would want it? When I travel with DH to the mountains, in his truck, we tussle back and forth over the temperature in the cab. I turn up the heat, he cracks the window...and on and on. You know how that goes! So, I'll use this blanket to snuggle up with to kill the draft!
This will be my draftinator!
