Woodi,
You blankie looks great. I love the colors. I have no idea how I get my sts even. I just knit. Thank you for the compliment. Someone else said that to me the other day too. Maybe it's the way I wrap the working yarn around my pinkie twice and knit with a very little slack in my yarn. I knit English styleDunno
I love garter st cause it is so brainless. It's what I do when I have to pay attention to DD and DH. No counting involved...

Woodi! I think your blanket is perfect. I 'eyeballed' the 'path' that your logs take...and it seems right to me!

Thank you. I am still going on it, here it is today, Sunday:


I think I might stop the square now, as I don't want a square blankey.....(I think) and put a wide border on each side, then continue knitting wide stripes top and bottom. Will that look strange?

Hey Woodi! I think I worked out where your pattern started to go off center (not that it matters). You're going anticlockwise until the first lot of buff, but when you change to green you start going clockwise. then you appear to have realised you've gone wrong somewhere and tried to "fix" it. which makes it really creative. And it'd be great to give to a really obsessive kid (like I was) and see how long it takes for them to work out that the colours repeat but the pattern doesn't. And your stitches look nice and even. Of Course if you want to knit some more Log Cabins to get it perfect...
Thi is all your fault Artlady. I can just see me walking into NarcAnom and saying "Hi, my name is Vixxen, and I'm addicted to LogCabins. Sometimes, the urges get so bad, I want to share needles between projects."
Meh, It's better than crack.
Oh and Woodi, how'd you read my KnitNotebook all the way canada? Lol, seeing as I've scraped the "extra end logs" idea feel free to take it.
On a "I'm going to pretend to be serious note" about how much yarn did it take for people to do their trims? I've got a week to get the last 2 and a half logs done and the trim and that means I have to get the yarn for it tommorrow.
And a picci of my progress...
Wow, Long post. too much coffee and sleep depravation.

Hey Vixxen,
You got that right about the addiction. I love the colors you choose for your blanket.

I kinda took a break form my lates LC to work on a lace scarf. I need to get back to it. I'm about 1/2 complete. Maybe I'll post another pic next week, when I have more done.

oh FV, that was so funny! I am flattered though, that you took the time to figure out where I went wrong, hehe. Good sighting!

I love your blue tones, very soothing. Please keep going on it, I want to see it bigger.... and where is it again, that I can find your knittingblog?

I'm still working on my blanket. I'm happy to see that I'm not alone, even if I'm the only one still on my first blanket.

I paged back (and back and back and back ) and I found I haven't posted a picture since I finished the second log. I have a picture with 3/4s of the fourth log completed and I just finished log 5 a couple of days ago. I'll have to post the one and take a picture of the other.

After I finished log 5, I decided to wind into a ball what was left of the skein. I think -- mostly hope -- that I have enough yarn for log 6, which is the last log in this color. I'm torn between wanting to have enough for the pattern and wanting to use it all up!

Thanks Woodi! My Blogs Address is
That's right, it doesn't exist. I also don't have Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Flicker, ect, ect. I do have rav, I'll pm you my username.
And Sakura_Panda, I'm still working on my first LogCabin. I just happen to be working on my second and a third blanket, and a bunch of non blankety projects. What can I say, I have KADD.
