I can't believe you are nearly done and talking edgings.

My logs takes longer and longer and I just have to walk away sometimes. I do bring it with me when I wait for my son to come out of school.

I am so looking forward to sylvi. Hopefully it will be a bit more interesting and quick knit.

I started last night, but the biggest problem I'm having is I don't really have enough stash to work in the few colors of the blankets. Mine will have to be a log cabin blanket of many colors.

Here are some pics of how I pick up stitches.

This is the edge of a knit row, where I slip the first and purl the last stitch. Notice the larger "hole", it makes it easy to see where to put your needle.

I push my needle through this hole and then pull the new color through.

I stick my needle through both legs of the stitch and pull the new color through. I bind off with a larger needle to make this step easier for me.

The picture of the whole back shows where I actually am right now. And the pink yarn I used to show how I pick up stitches is not actually going into my blanket.

I wouldn't hesitate to do 6-10 colors, Jan! I just happened to have an excess of kid colors, leftover from sweaters I had knit for grandbabies over the years!

Looking forward to seeing your blanket of many colors!

You could:

a) Slip first stitch purlwise then knit last stitch
or
b) Slip first stitch knitwise then purl last stitch

I use A.

Well, logs 1-9 are done. Log #9 is a split log (far right end)...but instead of making my log#9 in two equal squares, I made one larger than the other:


I am out of teal and pink...so log#10 is going to have to be split between purple variegated, rainbow variegated, & cream.
I might make log#10 into 3 sections, joined by intarsia like log#9 was. Maybe rainbow, then a speck of cream, then purple. I have almost full skeins (1 each) of rainbow and purple...but not much of cream. Then, what color for edging? The way the blanket is laying, log#10 will travel across the top of the blanket. This will widen out the blanket, too.

By looking at it now...I might pick up purple stitches across the top 3 logs, a little cream log across the middle purple log, and the rainbow across the 2 far right, wide logs.

Someone asked to see a section of my reverse side:
