New Log Cabin Project
Inspired by a photo at Ann and Kay's blog, I bought some Jojoland Rhythm yarn and started knitting it into Log Cabin squares. The yarn changes color gradually, and I'm thrilled by the results! Each square was knitted from a different ball of Rhythm.
To answer the technical questions...
I'm knitting with U.S. size 7 needles (bamboo straights). I bought 11 balls of yarn, but I can already tell that I have more than enough to make 12 squares at least, if I keep making them in the size I posted. (I've used about 3/4 of a ball of yarn for each one.)
The current plan is to knit up nine squares from nine separate balls of yarn, then make three "crazy squares" from the remainders. Or I'll use the remainders for a nutty border. I'm not sure yet.
As you can tell, I'm kind of winging this one. :) But it's a lot of fun! The colors have been very cheerful during our gray January in the NYC area.
