That is beautiful--like all of your work! I wish I lived near you. I would then beg/pay you to teach me to be as good as you.

I so agree with Hallegold, above. I wish I lived near you, so I could come knit with you, be inspired by your persistence in the face of boredom, in conquering even the most difficult of patterns. What is your secret to that? btw: are you a Taurus? (= bull, stubborn)

Gorgeous! The edges and corners are so straight and crisp - is that a result of your good knitting, or good blocking, or both?

I finished a baby blanket recently, but I'm not happy with the side edges. I haven't tried blocking yet because I want to get the straight wires to see if they do a better job.

Thanks McKnitty! No, I didn't block the log cabin blanket.
I just bound off the edges normally. I think the yarn I used
performs especially well with garter stitch!
