Log Cabin Blanket


I started this project last year when I was struggling with the winter blahs.  I pulled out my log cabin squares again this weekend, adding a few rows here and a few rows there.  I wonder how many winters it will take me to finish?

    1. Thanks, Taryn! Sometimes it's fun to just reach into the scrap basket and knit what ever color I pick out.

  3. What a great idea! Thank you! I need to think about doing this, too. I am newly retired and starting one now and working on it in the winter sounds like a good way to use my leftovers.

    1. You're welcome. I really love these squares, because you can travel easily with them and you don't have to try and maneuver a whole blanket at once.

  5. I've been wanting to knit this blanket for ages and I'm re-inspired seeing your beautiful squares. No matter how long it takes, I like the idea of this slow process that follows you winter after winter.

  6. That's going to be amazing! I really don't need another long term project - just started a quit - but I think I might just cast-on one of these (using up bits of stash - sort of like spring cleaning - right?). Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Yes, exactly like spring cleaning! Are you sewing a quilt? I wanted to try quilting this winter, but I haven't gotten around to it. Oh well, there's always next winter.

    1. Thanks, Ana. I'm using left over bits of worsted weight yarns, most of them I hand dyed.
