It's an absolutely beautimous day here in Northern California! Oh happy sunshiney day!
The poppies are in bloom, the sun is shining, the air is warm with a bit of a nice breeze. What more can a person ask for?
So I finished the third square last night, we barbecued, and a good time was had by all. It didn't seem that this third square took quite as long as the second one did - the first one seemed to fly in.
This isn't exactly the best take-along knitting project. I have a bazillion colours of yarn that I could possibly use, and of course I don't want to limit myself by bringing along only a couple of colours. Each square has the possiblity of using 18 different colours. Though I've doubled up on a couple of the squares, and of course I'm trying to keep the red in the centers consistant.
So here's a close up of the squares with the narrow strips in cool colours arranged so that they meet in the center. I love the starlike effect that this gives. It really gives me a lot of incentive to make more squares. I just get so pleased with how each new element adds so much. I know - I'm easily amused.
And here's a close up of the squares arranged in another configuration - with the warm - wider strips in the center - giving the illusion of a circle... When the quilt is all put these two elements will be interspersed throughout... so there's my motivation for actually finishing it.
So I figure it took me a week to finish off these 3 squares. If my endurance holds out at this pace it will be done in 12 weeks. Must knit more...
Have fun everyone! And if you're working on a log cabin - I'm loving seeing some of the different variations of other knitters out there in blogland... I love patterns like this where the possibilites are just endless...
