Oh sorry, I forgot to answer someone's question about HOW I work the Log Cabin logs...she asked do I leave LIVE STITCHES after each log is complete?
No, I work the Log Cabin logs exactly
as the Mason-Dixon chicks say. When a log has the right number of ridges...and with Right Side facing, I bind off the stitches...and at the end of the log...I turn the corner to the left...and pick up brand new stitches for the next log.
It's just too easy to pick up stitches...and then when you are done with a log...you are DONE...no live stitches hanging around on cables with caps, or waste yarn. It's like a good clean divorce. No baggage!
No loose ends.
