I find it very amusing that Stephanie commented on my last post that I should start a Log Cabin Blanket. 'Cause that's what I've been planning to do!
I wanted to make a blanket for The Girl for some time now (I plan on it being a Christmas gift), but I couldn't decide on a pattern. Mitered squares? Ripples? Log Cabin? During the JoAnn's sale last weekend I grabbed two more skeins of yarn with my 40% coupons (yep. I use them for the big $2.89 purchases).
I tried to draw out the pattern with the colors I had, but I couldn't get a good feel for how it would look with only initials for the color placement. Time to dig out the colored pencils!
The more I played with this design the more I enjoyed it. I like how it looks like little paths through the blanket. The colors in my drawing are not accurate to the yarn colors, so here you go.
I am however not looking forward to the heat of knitting a blanket during Texas summers, so we'll see how long my motivation lasts!
I'm resisting casting on right now with every fiber of my being (haha! - fiber!). I really want to finish up one more thing before we leave for our trip, so I'm trying to keep focus.
