I'm guessing that weezie is sandi?.....love your knitting! The colors really vibrate. Is it the yarn? or the color changes?....or just maybe my computer screen,

anyways, Kudos to you!

Yep, Weezie is me, Sandi.

The pictures are distorted because of my picture editing software. I'm not that bright when it comes to techy stuff, so I just re-size my pics so I can post them here and the pixels have to be so low that it's really grainy. In a way, it makes it look "swirly" on here, which actually looks kinda cool, but I just used Simply Soft in simple pastel colors, so it's really a much more "mellow" looking blanket than the pic shows. Would be fun to find yarn that looked like the picture though!!

I just had these colors around for parts of another project and had really no use for them for anything else, so thought they'd be perfect to use up for this log cabin stashghan... turns out they were! These are not my favorite colors, nor do they really fit my definitely pink granddaughter and definitely blue grandson, so I thought I'd donate it to charity, but now I'm thinking it might just stay here and the kiddos can use it when they come and visit us!

I'm not a color-coordinating person, just never been good at it, but watching all of you on this KAL has given me a lot of inspiration to just "go for it" and try anything... I just love some of the color combinations you all have chosen.

Thank you all for your kind words!

Yes! Sandi - your blankie is so pretty! I know what you mean, I have trouble getting colors in the photo to really be what they look like in person. But yes, it is fun to see everyone's ideas - so many different ways to do this!! The possibilities are endless.

Weezie, your blanket is so beautiful! I just love the colors, especially the lavender and yellow together - they're my favorite colors. Great job!

I think I need counselling help (as in psychological)....I cannot stop knitting on this lapghan, even though I ran out of edging thread 4 inches ago, when it was 32 by 32 and I was intending to end it.

Instead, I thought: gee, 32 by 38 would be even better. So I abandoned the log cabin square, and continued knitting stripes on one side only. It is now 32 by 36 and still going.....



Help me! Is there a doctor in the house?
