Hello from N.J.!
Here's my first Log Cabin (mug added for scale). It'll be a throw, eventually. I really like the pattern; it's easy, and it has turned me into a pro at picking up stitches.
I'm knitting it from stash. The blue and red are the Highland Wool from elann.com, and the purple, black and burgundy are Patons Classic Wool. The red isn't nearly as bright in person as it is in the photo; it's a deep red that works nicely with the other colors.
More to come, especially after I get my shipment of Peaches & Creme from Annie's Attic! My best friend is pregnant with her second child, and I think a kimono may be in order. Maybe two.
I'm form NJ originally, Trenton area.
Joanni: I'm in Jersey City. I'm not from here originally, but most of my mom's whole family hails from Ocean County (Toms River/Pine Beach). So in a way, N.J. is "home" to me.
