WIP Wednesday: Log Cabin

March 27, 2019

When I started the Log Cabin Throw, the intended recipient’s arrival seemed far off. Probably because it was. But Baby-to-Be is due in just about two weeks, so I’d best pick up the pace.

Since it’s knit from the center out, each segment is about seven inches longer that the one it’s “stacked” on. The entire piece will be much bigger than the usual baby blanket, but I envision a loving adult wrapping her- or himself and the baby in this cozy item.

As predicted, the second Frasier Fir Sock is moving along quickly. I’ve just started the cuff bind off. On the theme of trying new things, the pattern calls for the Invisible Ribbed Bind-off for some extra stretch at the cuff.

I’m heading off for a sock knitting lesson later this morning with dear friend Barbara — she of the beautiful Eleventh Hour Marled Blanket. Today’s lesson plan: heel flap and turning the heel.

What’s on your needles today?

    That blanket looks amazing. Lots of stitches to pick up, though, not my favorite thing.
