Moderne Log Cabin - Log Cabin Syndrome

I have it.

It feels good.

You will be infected on reading this blog, so it is already too late. You will be infected and assimilated.

I have it so bad I am actually thinking of getting back into quilting. Thinking hard about it.

Hope this photo doesn’t make you cringe, cause it is very bright.



Like KatieLiz, I have decided to keep my waiting stitches on holders rather than bind off. I think it makes for a better look, and because I have Denise Needles it is super easy. I have the extra long cords which are going to be very handy.

Using my knock-your-eyes-out bright Cotton-Ease (discontinued - wah!). The next section will be in that lilac that is placed next to that pink/red block. I think the lilac will actually tone the colors down - we shall see. Bright is good, right?

Anyway, not being able to knit a pattern without modification, and seeing this is done in a heavier weight yarn, I modified the cast-on and knit rows count, and the resulting pick up and knit row counts to get a similar size of 50" x 60". I also rearranged the color placement to suit myself.

I will have more than enough in each color for the main part of the spread. Fingers crossed. I want to knit a multiple colored border but that might not work with the blue because I only have a bit of that - hence it being in only 2 of the smaller sized blocks.

Peace!

I love the blanket! I was sososo sad when I found out that Cotton-Ease was discontinued..I love it!!! I want to try a log cabin blanket after I finish the mitered one I'm working on now, but that's many months into the future..Good luck, it looks great!
 
The bright colors are wonderful. I also love your log cabin, I checked out your blog. Your knitting is beautiful.
 
Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!

I love it too. Mine will be a bit more muted for my living room, but I would love this in my den.
 
Have you heard they're bringing Cotton-Ease back? Lion says they're going to reintroduce in a few months in new colors.
 
Resistance is futile! I'm knee deep into a log cabin blankie for my big bro. He'll love it!

Very nice bright colors!
