Chj, very nice work!

Aren't LOG CABINS addicting? You cannot have too many blankets...but until I bumped into SEAMLESS blankets...I just didn't want to knit them unless DESPERATE!

ArtLady - addicting is absolutely correct! These are great to knit while watching TV (you don't need to pay attention most of the time with straight knitting) and it's fun changing colors. I find myself drifting off-pattern because I'll get to thinking I'd like a different color here or not so much of that color there... so I change up as I go. It's like painting or something. I've never been artistic, but I can get creative with these. And they are unique when you're done. I can't wait to get to it at the end of the day. I'm having fun, for sure!!

I have an update. I finished another log!



I don't know what's going to happen with it now. I usually work on it while DH and I watch TV together in the evening, but he has been moved to third shift. I added the new color just before he started, knit a couple of rows, and haven't picked it up since.

Katie, it's beautiful. I love the colors. I wish you could keep knitting on it, just to show us! Do you absolutely NEED your hubby to sit beside you for you to knit? .....is he your creative muse?...or is it just that you don't watch TV when you're alone. (I know, none of my business.....just curious)

Thanks for the kind words. Little web photos are so forgiving -- there's lots of little oopsies in that blanket -- mostly because I'm inconsistent about which side I bind off and pick up on. I think I've got every combination in there.

I don't need him, but knitting is my second hobby. I'm a scrapbooker that knits, so when he is gone, I scrapbook. I knit on my own sometimes, but it's harder to find time and space to scrapbook, so I do that when I can and then knit when I can't.

This morning he told me that he is probably going to be back on first shift in a couple of weeks. Hockey season starts soon and I think this year I'm going to stay up and watch more games.

I'd love to finish that blanket by the end of the year!

Finished!
Here's my log cabin #2, done finally - it's the baby-sized, though I took some liberties and changed up the pattern a bit. It came out about 40" x 48", on size 8 needles with worsted weight. Hard to tell by the pictures, but that's chocolate brown, teal, yellow, and an off white. I love the way it turned out.
