Log Cabin Blanket

The never ending log cabin blanket is final finished!

Coming up on 2 years ago I won some Knit Picks Brava Sport in Red, White and Blue on Julie's blog and then picked up some yellow and green to go with it and decided to make a log cabin blanket for Alexander. 

There was a false start where I messed up picking up the stitches, I didn't pick up enough, which meant it puckered so it was ripped back and started again. 

Slowly over the last 2 years (and many periods of hibernation) it has taken shape...


Then last week I finished it. Finally!! I pretty much ran out of yarn and didn't have enough left of any colour to complete the 20 rows for an additional block.

After a few days of contemplation I decided to add an applied i-cord border. I think I'm going to have to give it a bit of a blocking as the corners now don't lie flat but the kids have claimed it so that might never happen.
