Hip Hip Hooray! My Log Cabin Blankie is Done!
It was my goal to finish my log cabin blanket by the end of August. It was really close, but it ended up being in the evening on Sunday, September 3rd instead. I'm really really happy with how my log cabin finished up. My husband even said it "looks beautiful." The final measurements is 50 inches square. I used Sugar & Creme yarn. I bought 2 balls of each color and I have a several balls left over which I plan on using for knitting up dishcloths. I can't say exactly how long it took to knit up because I had been working on the blanket all summer and stopping to knit up other things. The other things I completed while knitting the log cabin were several dishcloths, a superfancy potholder loop hallway rug, and 2 felted bowls.
Now on the needles I have started a Circle of Fun Rug from the Mason Dixon Knitting blook and a Sophie bag.
