Log Cabin decisions decisions

I am getting ready to start a log cabin and wanted some advice. I love lambs pride bulky yarn Do you all think that is too heavy for the project? And I would love a suggestion for a great cotton yarn of the same chunkiness of the lamb's pride. Thanks so much

Comments:
well it wouold definitely go quickly! i like araucania nature cotton for bulk.
 
Thanks I will look for that!
 
My concern with the Lamb's Pride (and all wool yarns) is how on earth would you wash and dry the blanket? I'm only doing my Log Cabins with washable yarns.
 
Yes, the washing and drying is important if you want to make a large one. I also find the lamb's pride bulky to shed a bit. I made mine with a dk weight microspun acrylic (yikes) but it is completely machine washable and dryable, and it came out lovely... I think I'm going to try one in cotton.

I forgot about the shedding. I use LP Bulky for bags and it is very hairy.

I'm making one LC blanket in cotton/acrylic and one in acrylic. When I make one for myself (those two are for charity), I'm considering KnitPicks Shine.
 
Sounds like knit picks of araucania cotton then. I forgot about the shedding which will drive my darling husband nuts - hey maybe a good thing?

Thanks everyone for the voice of sanity - LP would have been an expensive project.
