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.

Beautiful blanket and beautiful work! Love the closeups that show the "tweediness" of the yarn.

So beautiful! Thanks for the closeups - I wanted to know how many ridges you did and was able to count them! Love it!

I posted good notes in my Ravelry Log Cabin Notebook.
I'm glad I posted the closeups! Hope they help you!

Well, each ball of yarn weighs 3.53 ounces.
I used 24.19 balls...so that would total 85.39 ounces...
which is 5.34 lbs!

How does that compare with other blankets? Like quilts and such?

BORED is an understatement!
I was BORED!

Motivated, but bored...and I'd never do it again. Ever.
I wish I had used a larger needle, to cover more ground more quickly!
