Log Cabin Blanket

7:00 AM

Finally.  The Log Cabin Blanket is finished.  I started this blanket in May 2012 as part of my stash busting challenge.  I worked on it sporadically.  It was the mindless knitting that I needed in between harder projects.  
It's made entirely of acrylic yarn that has been in my stash for years.  Many years ago I made a baby blanket for a friend, but by the time I finished I had already purchased a gift for the baby so I donated the blanket to Project Linus.  A couple of weeks later I got a call from the local chapter coordinator.  She asked if I wanted some yarn.  She had a bag of donated scrap yarn.  I said yes.  I like the randomness of scrappy projects.  When we met, she brought me a huge trash bag full of yarn.  

Fast forward to 2012 and the stash busting challenge.  Did I clean up the stash?  Kind of.  I put a small dent in it.  The rubbermaid container the stash is in is a little bit lighter to pick up now.  OK.  The blanket.  Each stripe is a different color.  I know it's hard to tell in the picture, but while there are similar colors, they are all different.  

I found the pattern on the Garn Studio website.  My Ravelry notes.   It was a fun blanket to work on and I would certainly make another one.

  1. It looks lovely and now you need to start another one because you still have scraps and stash yarn!

  2. Oh, I love it! I love scrapghans and I love the Log Cabin square. I made an afghan, actually, with a bunch of small log cabin squares, but I like the look of just one giant one, too. Beautiful!

  3. I'm catching up on blog reading and I wanted to say thank you for the book you mentioned in yesterdays post! Ree is a HORRIBLE eater. I stress out so much trying to get her to eat. (ANYTHING. She won't eat sweets, vegetables, meat, anything. She will eat a little fruit and yogurt but just trying to get her to sit & eat is a battle). I'm looking forward to getting this book from the library! I love the log cabin blanket! I want to make one now too. I'm sure I have plenty of yarn in my stash!

  4. LOVE it!! Those colors are awesome! :)

  5. It is wonderful that you've used up some unloved acrylic and transformed it into such a bright and pretty project. Congrats on finishing such a great project! I hope that you are well


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
