Sorry you have the flu, but what great reason to just sit and knit. I think I'm coming down with something, too. (cough, cough) LOL. Actually I was sick last month and didn't enjoy it one tiny bit. I will get a chance to do some real knitting this weekend, as we are going on a 3 hour road trip and then we will be sitting a lot at a car show. I can't wait. Hope you feel better soon.

Here's the 6 hr afghan pattern. I am borrowing a friend's needles and have a pair on order.http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80215AD.html

LuvMyKid - that's a great picture with DD!! It's fun to see someone appreciate the work when it's all done. I started and finished another log cabin (sort of). I posted the pictures on the other thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=90635). That one went fast, got it done in about 2-1/2 weeks. Moving on to the next project!!

I just measured my two finished blankets and they are both about 34"by42". What size is everyone else making?

Thank you Chj. I checked out your blankie. I love it. I might have to give that pattern a try.

Every time I click on that Lion Brand link, it gets me to a page which says I need to register. So I just did. Waiting for my email confirmation, so I can go in and look at the link you posted. Thanks!

Got it! Looks deliciously cozy. As soon as I can find some yarn I'll begin it.

Have a great road trip, luvmy!

It's so much fun because it's just free-form and you can do whatever you want. Got the idea from ArtLady & her camo-blanket. It wasn't exactly the same, but the same idea. (Thanks again, ArtLady!!)

Well, log nine has been compleated and the yarn has just about run out. I have an annoying ammount of evil yarn left, too much to chuck, not enough to do... really anything with. Maybe I'll make a matching cushion cover
Anyway, I've now at 90cm/1 yard square. I've bought some yarn to finish it off and will hit lincraft for the replacment I've found (Lincraft Romance) for the discontinued brand (moda vera trinity) asap.
It looks like I may be good to go for mothers day.

Yay, Firey Vixxen - great to be making progress! I have a fair amount of yarn left also, so my stash is larger than before I started. I like your idea of a matching cushion cover. I've also thought of making a small matching blanket for my CATS, who jumped on my new blanket the second I laid it out to take a picture.
