Everybody's blankets look wonderful. Once again I am stunned by your speed of knitting Artlady.

i am itching to start another log cabin blanket. I have a load of cotton in off white, might have a dying session over the Easter holiday in three weeks time and use what ever colours they make for me.

Holy cow, I've been gone for about a week, and everyone is going to town! Jeez, Artlady, that camo/striped blankie is AWESOME! Dreamsherl, I love your colors, too, and Jessica, you are moving right along (great colors)!! I've taken a few detours with mine and changed my mind about where it was going a couple of times. I'm on the edges, finishing up one intarsia section. I have one border edge done. But it's slow going since the sides are so long. I have to get this thing done before the weather gets warm because I won't want to be draped in the thing at that point!! I need to put the sock and the scarf away...

Update
Working on Log 20. I switched to 40" cables. I think it measures somewhere around 26x30. Whenthe yarn runs out, I'm finished. DD holds it up everday, hinting that she would really like to have it. I haven't told her that I'm making it for her. Will give it to her for Easter.

Well I'm done, finished, kaputznik! I made a BIG mistake, so now it's off-the-needles and as soon as I weave in all the loose ends, this silly binkey is going up to a native reserve for hopefully one toddler there may find it beautiful.

The mistake: I switched to larger needles, ended the square pattern, and decided to knit just stripes (see bottom of blanket in pic). I erroneously thought that if I switched to a larger needle (from 4.5 mm to 5 mm) that it would go faster, look less 'tight'.

Lesson learned:
Quote:
"Never, never switch needle sizes halfway through a project!"
Well, maybe someone will think it's a flaired bottom.....meant for tucking your feet into....?

I learned a lot from doing this project. I'm now anxious to do one that is better planned, with all-the-same type of yarn, and without switching needles halfway. Sheesh.

Oh well, it was fun sharing my blunders with you. Hopefully, some of you will learn another what-not-to-do or three.

Well, even though it's got lots of 'curves'...it is still a beautiful combination of colors and yarns, and you did arrange the colors very nicely! It is very striking! Good work! And bless you for sticking with it!
