My Log Cabin Baby Blanket
Why do I love this book? I think it's because it inspires me to do more with my knitting. I used to be scared to death of picking up stitches. I was terrible at it (or so I thought) and I thought it was too hard.
Well, that book changed all of that - check out my Log Cabin Baby Blanket. The book is in the photo for size perspective. I have a friend who is pregnant, and I wanted to make a bright, fun baby blanket. Since she doesn't know what she's having, I thought a multi-color blanket would be great, so here it is! Obviously, I have a ways to go, but it's a fun, quick knit!!
hmp - the yarn is Plymouth Encore (75% acrylic, 25% wool). I bought it at my LYS for $8/ball, but WEBS (www.yarn.com) is having a crazy sale on it right now for like $4 or something.
