Yes, I agree with Artlady, it's a lovely combination of colors. SOmeone will be proud to have it. The next will be all the better. I always like to learn from each of my projects.

Woodi, I have to say I kinda like it. Maybe if you went all the way around with the larger needles so it was all "ruffley" it would look more normal, but it's a lovely, colourful, textureful blankie. and the most important things are:
1-is it cuddley?
and
2-is it warm?
and if there aren't a few stuff ups, how do people know it was made with love?

Thanks for your words of encouragement, everyone! and FieryVixen: that's a good idea, putting a wide ruffle all around......pondering, pondering....
BUT: I'm a bit weary of this project now, almost like the feeling you get after a big, wonderful meal.....
and am already planning a new blankey, perhaps favoring Artlady's stripes. Haven't chosen the yarn yet, but it will be all one type of yarn, (I think....). and likely in yellows, reds, oranges.....with a green toner. I'm done with the blues for this winter. (and the S.A.D.s - yay! it worked.) Thank you artlady, for bringing me through the blues of another horrid, cold Canadian winter.

I'd like next to make something straight and perfect - just to see what THAT might look like, lol.

Meanwhile, I am working on the Yarn Harlot's scarf pattern. Looking at the scarf, I'm thinkin': I could make a bunch of these and sew them all together for a blankey - good idea? or not?.... here it is now:
It's made with Wiggles TLC yarn, hence the tiny 'worms' in it.

Help... I'm Crooked and Don't Know Why
I have lurked a while, but having just begun my log cabin squares, I couldn't help but ask for some guidance. I've attached my FIRST attempt at a log cabin square, but as you can see, it's smaller at the bottom. I think that's because I was still figuring out how many stitches to pick up (I think I didn't pick up enough). What do you think (please ignore the color scheme; I have some nice new purple scheme yarns when I finally figure out how to do this)! Thanks a million. I've seen everyone's work and just love all of them.

Saldina, welcome to KH!

The narrow part is where you started right? It looks like you picked up too many stitches which ends up increasing.

It looks to me like when you finished the lower light blue log, you cast off and forgot to turn the blanket to the left an then pick up the sts. It looks like you picked up sts across the bottom og the log and started you new color. Remember to always turn to the left and then pick up sts. I hope this helps.
