The knitting project that I craved to try is called a Log Cabin blanket. I understood the concept, but for the longest time I could not figure out how to change colors with this technique. I kept waiting to try this out myself and had it as a goal.
Wednesday night I did a search on You Tube and found a video showing how to do exactly what I needed. It seemed easy enough to follow. So, I took out a bunch of my old scraps of cotton yarn.
Next thing I knew, I had a small little Log Cabin square going. It isn’t perfect – I think I added a stitch in my original color change. Still, I am quite proud to say that I figured it out and can eventually try some larger projects with this technique.
Here are some photos of the mini Log Cabin as I worked on it.
This is the finished piece. I put it on my laptop to give you an idea of the final size.
My knitting goal helped me to come up with my final Aloha Friday question for 2010:
What are some of your goals for 2011?
I like to set goals to accomplish, rather than resolutions that quickly get crushed or forgotten. Happy New Year to everyone. May the coming year be filled with good health, magical memories, and fun times!
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
