Log Cabin finished!

Hi all, I've finished my Log Cabin. More pictures of the same and some info are to be found on my blog. Glad it's done. Now on to the next one. ;o)

Am I the only one...

...who can't find any old posts on this blog? Is it a Blogger bug or something intentional?

Ugly.

Is it me?
Or is this ugly?

I wanted to combine some efforts!

I used my stash of Blue yarn - for Project Spectrum.
Making use of WHAT I have - for Use What You Have.
I wanted my 'Log Cabin' to become a Bag - for Bagaholics Anonymous.

There was no category for Works of Ugly Knitting - or is there? *LOL*

Maybe the other side will go better?
Should I just start over?

It's growing...

Thought I'd share my progress with you all... each stripe is starting to be a mini-scarf, but I can really see how big it's getting. I've been weaving in my ends after I finish each "round" (4 stripes) so that when I get done I don't have that daunting task ahead of me.

Denim yarn

I have not been knitting much, but thinking about my log cabin blanket a lot. I am still looking for a way to incorporate the denim yarn. First my plan was to knit solid blue squares, and using them in the blanket. Now I am convinced that the 'blue' squares also need to have a small central square, that stands out. In my stash I have 2 colors of denim yarn, a very dark blue, and a light blue. I went to the yarn store, to check if this yarn also exists in cream/natural as the Rowan denim yarn. Turns out that it comes in 3 shades of blue. What I have is the dark and the medium blue. I bought an extra ball of the lightest blue. I decided to knit a square with the light and medium color. I expect it to shrink, so I knitted it on a larger needle (3mm), and made the bands a bit wider. Looks like I still need to experiment a bit, I am not convinced yet that this will work.
A new plan is emerging - why not knit a second log-cabin out of denim yarn ? If I would have my own blog, I could put the 2 buttons up!
