Log Cabin Blues, Indeed



It seems that my choice of names for my latest (and belated) Log Cabin project was more apt that previously expected. In setting up Excel to help me chart my colors and arrange a final pattern for the various squares, I inadvertently figured out a way to calculate precisely how much progress I'd made on the blanket. Being all for precision and perfection, I went ahead and did the math.

Conclusion? I have just now crossed the halfway mark. Gah.

Happy discoveries of the day: a Loopy Ewe group on Ravelry, and a DIC Shrug that only requires 2 skeins of Classy. I'm thinking "Into the Mystic" is my color of choice for that last one.

I know exactly how you feel. I just passed the halfway mark with my "Endless Afghan" -- I don't think I will ever get it finished.

Log cabins trick you into thinking they're fast at the beginning. Pete's baby blanket started to take FOREVER on those last few rectangles. Have fun slogging along!
