Project: Log Cabin Blanket + Socks that Rock = Blanket that Rocks
Inspiration: Cara's Blankets and Mason-Dixon Knitting
Ingredients: STR In the Navy, Midsummers Night, Blue Moonstone in Heavyweight; one skein each; additional 1/4 skein of In the Navy for border; size 6 needles
Date Began: 4/4/07
Date Completed: 5/7/07
Measurements: 33.5" x 32"
Notes: I relied a lot on the basic Log Cabin Blanket Pattern in Mason-Dixon Knitting. In regards to the color choices when picking which strip to start next, I used the three colors in different orders, but always the three colors. For example, dark (D), medium (M), light (L), then L, M, D, then M, L, D, etc.... Had an equal number of strips on each side. Followed the border from Mason-Dixon after I got helpful input from Disco and Knit Me a River (thanks!!), and Rowan too. When I make another, I may try to find four colors that I love together to make blanket a bit bigger. But I LOVE this blanket (oh, recipient: me).
Let's see how it works in its natural environment!
On the couch.
On my bed. See how it matches my comforter. And how Bailey is not quite sure she is allowed on this blanket :)

Thanks for cheering me on with this project (and putting up with blue after blue after blue progress posts!). I have to agree with Little Guy... this Blanket Rocks!
