A finished log cabin

Log Cabin blanket It's been trying at times but I finally finished my Log Cabin blanket for my new nephew. I finished sewing in all of the ends about 2 1/2 hours after he was born. If I must brag, it's beautiful and the "picture frame" border described in the book worked out beautifully. The middle square is a pocket, so I'll be knitting a little bear to go in the pocket. That idea came from Vogue Knitting's Baby Blankets book.

I used Encore DK yarn with size 7 needles. I'm taking a break from log cabining for a while to work on other things but I will probably start my next Moderne Baby Blanket in mid-October. Meanwhile, I'm still cranking out dish/washcloths for friends who are moving and babies who are being born.

Erica, this blanket is very colorful and great for a baby! Nice work! Isn't it a great feeling to put it finally away and move on to other things? ;o)
 
Wow! What a great blanket!
 
That's gorgeous! Love the bright colors. You should be very proud!
 
What colors did you use of the Encore yarn? About how many skeins of each did you need? Details, please! Looks great!
 
It's beautiful - I love bright colors for babies. And the idea of a little bear in the pocket is sweet.
 
wonderful baby blanket
