I have been working on this blanket (mostly monogamously) for 18 months. I am super keen to knit some socks!
The pattern is the Moderne Log Cabin from MDK (published in Mason Dixon knitting). I made a mistake, and then just continued adding rectangles until it reached the size I wanted. I used Classic 8ply yarn from Bendigo (superwash) in the following colours (you can see all of the colours in the top image)
A year in the making I finally finished my Log Cabin Moderne Blanket for Miss A.
It’s double bed size.
I finished it on the 31st Of October 2021 – started in November 2020
Miss P wants the same, but in purple. I have ordered the yarn, but the white is on back order at Bendigo. The other colours have been sent, but haven’t arrived yet. Once they arrive, I will think about re-jigging the colour scheme.
I have been (unusually) a monogamous knitter. I started working on this blanket in early December and apart from a brief flirtation with my November sock (while I was on Rottnest Island) I have knitted only this.
This is all garter stitch and it is easy to get into a lovely rhythm and just want to do ‘one more row’.
I have been watching television series
Bridgerton – is anyone else watching this? It is beautiful. I read The Duke and I in preparation, but I need to read the other seven novels in the series.
I wanted to make something that my girls could keep to remember me by if the worse happens. I decided on the Moderne Log Cabin from the Mason Dixon knitting book. I am using shades of blue and cream from Bendigo Woollen Mills – it is the classic 8ply (I wanted something that could be machine washed).
I am using 4mm needles (an addi circular one).
I picked the stitches up on the edge using the Yarn Harlot’s tutorial – I did knit into the back of each stitch once I had picked them all up.
