Log Cabin for a little person
It was very fun to knit and see it come together (although I am an impatient knitter). It changes with every band you add, and I felt it only really came together visually in round eight. And the trim is key to making it look finished. The above image is before weaving in ends (which I did... I just couldn't knot and snip).
Yes, this was all on a US #5, 25" circular needle. I used a dk weight microspun acrylic... not what I usually knit with, but babies leak and this needed to be easily washed and dried. And can natural fibers ever get that bright?
I think I need one for my house now, and I'm torn between 1) another big log cabin, 2) a stripey mitered square blanket, or 3) how about s bunch of mini log cabins pieced together? Thoughts?
