Mitered Square Baby Blanket

I have finished a baby blanket knit for a co-worker. The backing was the hardest part. I am definitely a knitter and not a sewer:

woolly thoughts log cabin project... morphed

Hi all: way back when (last year sometime!) I had posted here about starting a project - the Tilting at Windmills afghan by Pat Ashforth at Woolly Thoughts. Some at the time had been interested in seeing the end result.

Well, it went into abeyance shortly after I started as I started getting into different stuff. However, I resurrected the part I had finished recently and it has now morphed into this:

This piece combines knitting and mosaic (as opposed to "mosaic knitting!" LOL) The detail photo shows the knitting component more clearly, I think:

More info and specs on my blog. The TTC log cabin (commuter log cabin made using swatches) is still in progress as well.

Booties - oops

Sorry, everyone. I've been having huge issues with blogger and a post for my personal blog ended up here. I have no clue why.

Anyway, it was a post about booties - completely unrelated to MDK. But I'll go ahead and edit this post to talk about the yarn I used b/c I think it would be great for MDK projects.

The yarn I'm using for these booties (obviously unfinished) is Classic Elite Yarns, Four Seasons, in Dark Blue Print and Green. Composed of 70% cotton and 30% wool. It's very soft! It would make a gorgeous baby kimono or log cabin blanket, for sure. The yarn comes in lots of great colors - pink, orange, purple, a lighter blue, khaki and more.

By the way, anyone else having Blogger issues? I keep getting server error messages and it's driving me nuts. It's taken me 15 minutes just to edit this post and I'm crossing my fingers that it will actually post. :)

Mitered Blankie - finished!

At long last it's done!

I chose to do the knitted i cord edging and it took FOR EVER!

You forget just how long it takes to put together a blanket of this size (Single bed size!) AND do the edging.
