Karina! I just LOVE your blankie!!! LOVE LOVE!
The colors are perfect!

Lieuvena! TCOB good mommie! The blanket will be there waiting when your family is up and running! I remember those days....

Thanks for checking in!

How's everyone else doing? I'm thinking that perhaps most folks will get started this week, now that New Years Eve and New Years Day, and the New Years shopping sales are ended!

Today is Jan 5th...and it is slushy raining here in the Greater Seattle area. My DH just went out the door...he'll be gone most of the day...and a knitting buddy is coming by at 11 am! So my day is looking very auspicious for my log cabin progress!

Artlady - I can't believe how quick you are. Looks really great. How big is it now? Will you be carrying on working on just two sides or will you work some more on the other sides.

That really looks great, Artlady. I can't get over how nice all of your pics look! Everyone's colors are lovely.
I'm still chugging away on the first block--I am going to re-tile my bathrooms this year and I have started tearing the old tile out of the master bath this week. I'm on vaca so I need to get as far with the de-tiling as I can before I'm back at work. I also had a couple of quick knitted gifts I needed to finish. But, my knit group meets tonight at Starbucks and I'm taking my block along to work on. It's great for knitting and chatting at the same time. Did I mention my first block is...black? I really can't wait to get onto another color, LOL!

I'm just going to follow the logs in order, 1-10, as shown in their diagram. I'm not very original when it comes to tweaking a pattern. If it ain't broke, don't fix it...is my motto!

It is rather boring...but...I just bite the bullet and don't think about it.

I like how it's turning out. I will measure it later. Didn't think to do that. I'll lay a tape measure beside the edges next time I take a photo.

Oh April! That sounds very dramatic! I like the concept of log#1 being black! Cool! Can hardly wait to see a photo of your blankie when logs 1-4 are done! Enjoy your Starbucks tonight!

I'm just plugging quietly away making it up as I go. Its nice not following a pattern, doesn't matter if i mess up because it becomes a deliberate design feature. Its currently about 12 inches by 13 inches and I've started my 8th log.

I am on block three ... again... I had to rip it out as I noted some errors in block one - I dropped a stitch (gosh darn late night knitting). good thing it was only a few rows in.

As for colours... the version I wanted to do was no do-able as the colours I wanted were not the right shade. When I am done more of third block I will post some pictures.. then I have to really decide on colour four.

I know what you mean about the color coordinating. I am kinda the same way.

However, interestingly enough...the Mason-Dixon gals said they always have a hodge-podge log cabin in the works, one in dk weight leftovers, and one with worsted weight leftovers. They also said they do not color plan...they just tack on whatever leftover yarn is available from the most recent FO. In other words, I don't think they let orphan partial skeins build up.

It is an intersting concept. Like the soup my mom used to make on Friday nights. It contained all kinds of leftovers from Sun-Thurs meals! Oddly, it really was good, and with hot homemade bread to go with!
