So, here's my progress on my Log Cabin Moderne as of last night. I wish the photo gave a better idea of the colors, it's really dark. The brown is a lighter taupe than you see, and the blue is also quite a bit lighter.
I love picking up the stitches, it looks so nice on the front, and saves me from a million years of finishing. I'm weaving in the ends (so very few ends, foolish grin) as I go. So when I'm done, I'm done! I'm telling you, those Mason-Dixon gals know what they are doing.
Of course, being on Ravelry as I am, I've found another afghan pattern I want to do...this one, of course, will require much assembly....it's called Circles to Squares. I saw it done in a completely different color scheme on Ravelry, and it was GORGEOUS. Each square was done differently, instead of the same color scheme, and it reminded me a bit of the Babette Blanket. How many afghans can a person do in a year????? And still get my knitting list done??? And of course TYF keeps offering classes I want to take...like the Einstein Coat. Sigh. What's a poor pattern and yarn addicted girl to do?
