Sometimes when I’m having a quiet day of introspection, I get to thinking, gee, maybe I’ve knit one too many log cabin blankets? Maybe I’ve exhausted the form? (Usually, when I am having such thoughts, I am sitting there knitting on a log cabin blanket, but whatever.)
Then I see something like Cathy of Ann Arbor’s version of our Buncha Squares blanket (which is itself a knitted version of Denyse Schmidt’s “real” quilt, What a Bunch of Squares. And the cloud of doubt dissipates into thin air. Yes, I can keep knitting log cabin blankets, no two the same, for the rest of my life.
Cathy. Cathy who is known on Ravelry as clphanson. Cathy, you took a pile of Lily Sugar ‘n Cream dishcloth cotton–dishcloth cotton for Pete’s sake!–an idea, and a couple of hundred hours of knitting, and turned it into a thing of beauty.
Everybody who loves log cabin, please go fave Cathy’s blanket, and carry her inspiration with you into 2011.
