The Very Autumn Log Cabin
The Mason-Dixon Knitting book is the first knitting book I've ever bought where I've wanted to make every single pattern. I love the practicalness of it (and I'm not a practical person).
I'm using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Hollyberry, Blueberry, Winter Night, some goldish color whose name excapes me, and I'm also throwing in some leftover Noro, & KP Evergreen.
I'm so addicted to the style, that I'm making another one, but with Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Permission Rose, Pink & Putty, and because I'm only using three colors it looks like a peppermint swirl. I'll post photos of it when it gets a bit bigger.
I think one of the things I really love about this blanket is that I'm using yarn I had lying around the house.
Susan - That's what's so great about the pattern, there's so much you can do to make it your own
