Off Center Log Cabin
I've really been wanting to update on this here blog, but I really wanted to wait until I had a couple of design elements repeating - It dawned on me that 7 would work very nicely - only problem is that my life is busy and each square takes me more hours than I would like.
I finally finished the required square in the wee hours last night - and took all the squares to work with me, so I could take pictures with some good natural light. It took me a little time to find a likely spot to spread out and snap my pics - it ended up being the lawn on the office building across the street from me. I wonder if anyone wondered what the heck I was doing? I must have made quite the sight.
Here's a different angle - I wish I'd had the time to play around with the placement of the squares - the possibilities are almost endless if you rotate the squares into different configurations.
Anyway - I'm just happy I could share my progress so far!
These 7 squares represent just over 19% of the total project - I've used 580 grams of my stash cotton, and am looking at 6-7 pounds total weight. Should make a bit of a dent in my monstrosity of a stash!
You can see my current spindle project thrown in for scale - more pictures are on my blog - abiknits.
Have fun everyone!
I'd love to do a bedspread someday. Alas, I've only been knitting 3 years so I don't have the stash for it. And purchasing all that yarn would seriously hurt my bank account. But someday...
can be relied on for a hint of executive authority, more brands are marketing air-cushioned Christian Louboutin Boots
or walking Christian Louboutin Sandals
