|My husband insisted on adding the pencil for scale.|
In other news, I have finished the Moderne Log Cabin Blanket by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. I liked the look of this blanket, though for the sake of my sanity and to complete this in relatively short order, I turned to the awesome powers of crochet. It worked well. The blanket is very cozy, and drapes very nicely. I only got bored during the last two squares, and at that point, being almost finished kept me going. I used half-double crochets (North American terminology here) for the whole thing, including three rounds of the same for the border.
