Enough Colors for a Baby Log Cabin?














Remember the great Cotton-Ease rush of 05' ? Lion Brand discontinued their cotton acrylic blend and lots of folks scrambled to hoarde, er...stash what was left. Let's just say that my mother and I share a considerable stash of Cotton-Ease. Pictured is a sample of the colors I have. Red, orange, yellow, pink, mint green, and two shades of blue. Do you think this is enough color variety for a baby log cabin blanket? If I need more shades, what would you suggest? I'm eager to take the color plunge, but I need some friendly advice. Posted by Picasa

i think its enough. the only thing is the amount that you have of each color. this blanket surprisingly eats up a lot of stash....if you run out, however, you could probably rely on your mom to loan you some more...of just stop...like i did:)
 
I agree with cristina, you might need more of the blue tones to finish. But I love the colors - that Cotton-Ease is wonderful stuff! One drawer of my stash is completely devoted to it. I'm jealous that you have orange, too. :)
 
I am thinking of doing the same thing! I'm not sure I hae as much variety as you, but I just figured I might see how far it goes.

Why would they discontinue something everybody loved so much?
The colors look wonderful!
 
Oh, I have TONS of the blue shades. Thanks for the encouragement. I'll probably cast on sometime this week after I finish some bibs for a co-worker.
 
These are sooo yummy looking. Can't wait to see them knitted up -- hope you will share that later! :) Why DID they discontinue something everybody loves and wants?
 
I love that stuff too, and I have a, er, stash of my own ... and want more - lol! Those colours will look so great together & it will be so dang snuggly soft!!!
Oh, gotta share, found a single (hidden) skein of white at my local Michael's, got it for $0.01 ... woohoo!!!
 
So funny: my baby needs a blankie, so I checked the stash and started a log cabin for her. Cotton-ease, and the exact same colours, except no pink because I used it up on a sweater for big sister. Mine isn't going to be very big, basically just enough to tuck around her legs when she's in the car seat, give her something to play with/chew on. I'm hoping to post a picture of it as a work in progress this week. Good luck with yours!
