Yarn Along

I've actually been reading this week, which means I have thing to share for the Yarn Along.



I've been working on creating a pair of gloves. This is the first time I've ever written a pattern, and it's time for me to start the right hand glove. I have to do things in opposite, so I'm a little scared. Instead of finishing the pair, I took a break and worked on a blanket that I've had in the works for almost a year.


It's a Log Cabin blanket. Each block is one skein of Noro Kureyon.
Get the pattern here.


This is my favorite color so far. I'm considering making a woven blanket with just this color, hence the reason it has the tag pinned to it.

This week, I'm reading a book called Uncut Cloth: Saris, Shawls, and Sashes. It talks about the history of woven cloths that are made into clothes. The pictures in the book are quite stunning. I found it at my local library.

  2. The blanket looks gorgeous. How clever to pin the band to the colour you like best, I wouldn't have thought to do that (and would invariably forget which colour it was!)

  6. Love seeing your log cabin knit blocks! I just revisited a log cabin knitting project last night that I have NO IDEA where it's headed, but it's fun and pretty!
