Log cabin blanket, part one of four

The end of June is such a busy time around here, so full of holidays and birthdays and parties of one kind or another, and the vegetable garden is abundantly green with leaves of both the good and the weedy sort.  It’s the very best kind of busy, but it leaves little time for yarn.  We spent the Father’s Day weekend doing all the kinds of things he likes, outdoorsy things like long bike rides along the canal and hiking in the woods, and now we all feel rugged and wonderful.  And then he went for a run while I made pie and then I slumped on the couch watching Notorious and, finally, knitting.  I finished the first part of the blanket:


This is the first of four, which I’ll then sew together and it will be huge and heavy and wooly and warm.  It’s a whole lot of knitting, but it’s the best kind there is, at least for me, right now.  I’m having so much fun working on it. 

Thank you, Shari for the lovely award!  She’s making the most beautiful crocheted baby dresses.  Go see!
