Log Cabin progress

Well I have 4 squares done - yippee! It's taking a little longer than I thought it would to pump these babies out - but they are coming along. I'm still amazed at how much yarn each one eats! One skein barely stretches to two segments of a square! I hope I hope don't run out of yarn - because I'm using sale yarn (Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky) and it's discontined!

Anyway - here's a pic

I also just got some news that my old roommate is expecting a baby girl! I finally get to knit something frilly and girlie for a change. It seems like everyone I know if having babies right now. I feel like the only one not pregnant! Anyway - I plan on making her a baby kimono from Mason Dixon to start. I am taking a break from my log cabining and will be knitting for the baby for a while. She needs a kimono or two, a few bibs, some booties and of course a blanket! WHo knows what else.

And now what you have all been waiting for - my first entry in Project Spectrum! July is for purple! It's amazing how little purple I actually have in my house. So little - I actually went around the house in search of some. Any kind of purple! I found the following:

your Log Cabin looks very nice!! even if you run out of yarn, you can always substitute, there are enough colors to blend. I love multi color projects. I am thinking of making a Log Cabin with different yarns.

Hi Jody! Wow wow, your Log Cabin is so beautiful! It is like Project Spectrum rolled up into one blanket :)

So glad you are a part of PS - thanks for showing off your lovely purples! I want a violet!

Hope to see you next Monday at Panera!
