Finished Log Cabin BABY!


If there were rules, this log cabin blanket would break them. I started it before the book came out, after seeing the one in the blog. It is made out of leftovers from all kinds of projects: mittens for my nephew, my brother-in-law's scarf, the afghan in the guest room, my husband's hat, etc etc. I didn't buy any yarn for this project. The yarns vary a fair amount in thickness and fiber content, but blocking made it more or less work out. Mostly wool, on size 10 needles...all in the sort of murky, slightly subdued colors I like. The finished size is about 36" square. Just to add a layer of funkiness, the center square is crocheted.
