Pete's Progressive Log Cabin Blankie

the log cabin blanket!

Pattern: Joseph's Blankie of Many Colors from Mason-Dixon Knitting [Ravelry]
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool
Needles: US 8
Recipient: TeamKaty and Pete!

Notes: All of us worked on this blankie! In a lot of ways it was a perfect group blankie - the gauge ended up being consistent across the blanket, in part because it involved picking up stitches to knit each section instead of knitting separate pieces that had to be seamed together later. 1824 Wool is also a forgiving yarn that tends to knit up evenly anyway. The one drawback is that only one knitter at a time could work on the project, but if you give yourselves enough lead time and are okay with passing the project around a lot, it's a winner!

The pic above is from the Babywarming Brunch we threw for Katy and Peter Chez Fig and Plum. All in all a pleasant afternoon - knitting, mimosas, presents, and brunch! Click here to relive it ;-) - once again, congrats H-C family!

UPDATE: Something else I have been meaning to share for yoga practicioners out there - I joined Lolly's Namaste Knitters group on Ravelry and have been getting a lot out of it. The group introduced me to Yoga Today, which has new classes daily and is excellent for home practice when you don't feel like winging it. Last night I did the "Core Stabilizers" class, and it, um, built my inner heat (i.e., kicked my can).

What a gorgeous blanket! I wish I could have been there - looks like a great party. (And I think that photo of Lisa and Steph needs a clever caption.)

I'm late on the comment train but ... what beautiful, subtle colors for a blanket! That is the stuff of heirlooms.
I was in NYC for part of my spring break, and when figuring out where to souvenir shop for yarn, your blog played a large role!
Can't wait to see the Forecast when you're done...

That's well known that cash can make us disembarrass. But how to act when somebody doesn't have cash? The only one way is to receive the personal loans or just collateral loan.
