  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket but I do have several patterns in my library. It would be fun to participate.

    • I’ve never knitted a log cabin pattern, but I’ve quilted them.

      Though I am doing a knit honeycomb blanket challenge this year, and a log cabin pattern would be interesting. Hmmm…

      • Love the blankets but I don’t know how to knit

        • Sadly me either. Alpaca wool is terrific though my GF has a few she sells etc in Washington State. Am in NC now …Brrrr…sigh

    • I’ve never knit a log cabin,and now would be a fun time to learn! I love the colors and variations.So many possibilities!

    • I quilted the log cabin pattern w/ my mom, when she taught me to quilt. I haven’t knitted one yet!

  • Beautiful kit! I’ve not been interested in knitting a log cabin blanket before but this post is changing my mind. Happy New Year!

  • Never made a log cabin blanket.
    Would love to try.

  • Have not done a log cabin project before, but it is on my knitting bucket list. Already subscribe to “Snippets “. Your email is the first when I log in each day!

  • Pick me, please!! LOL! I have never done a log cabin anything, but your emails have gotten me so excited about this knitalong that I have been sketching away! What a great way to keep warm this winter-a woolly blanket knit! We need it here-I am up in Erie,PA where we are nearing the 8 feet of snow mark and below zero temps!

    • Never knitted log cabin before. I have some yarn I picked in Alaska I plan to log cabin with for the logalong.

  • Another person who’s never done log cabin knitting. I did piece a single quilt block once upon a time though. We’re in the middle of the winter storm bomb. No snow but all the rain & high winds. Power out for 8 hours so far. Thank goodness for wool and layers.

  • I have never made a log cabin or nine patch blanket but I have been seeing many turn up on instagram and will make one as they look lovely

  • I never did a log cabin blanket or something similar before, but I really like the idea.

  • I love quilting log cabin pattern but have not knitted one yet! It would be ideal for a warm comfort for my friend receiving chemotherapy.

  • I first learned about log-cabin blankets from your book Mason*Dixon Knitting a few years ago. My favorite was a baby blanket I made for my grandson of super-wash fingering weight in deep saturated earthy brown and forest green.

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket before either.

  • I have made a log cabin dishcloth. Would love to make a blanket!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin anything but an still thinking about joining in the fun this month. I love this blanket!

  • First thing in the morning, I grab my iPad to see what knitting wonder is posted on MDK today. I could not start my day without you. Now this – I have never knit log cabin anything but have been following along with increasing interest. Love this blanket!

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket but I would like to have a go.

  • I’ve quilted a log cabin blanket but I’ve never knitted one. I would like to knit one to get me through this brutal winter!

  • I guess surviving the Bombcyclone ore better known as Grayson could entitle me to some new stash. What! I have the field guide waiting to be used! Thank you

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin anything! But, our son just requested a knit blanket. Perfect timing!

  • Brrrr! It’s cold in my neck of the woods, but no snow to make it worth while. I’m new to log cabin knitting but excited to try it. I may need to start with the dishclothes and work my way up (though it’s hard to stay warm with a dishcloth!).

    • Make a bunch of dishcloth sized log cabin samples and sew them together. They’ll be warmer that way. 🙂

  • I have been dying to make a log cabin blanket

  • I’ve made the mitered cross blanket — it’s my favorite throw to wrap up in when the weather is frightful . . . like it is right now!

  • Beautiful colors. I’ve never made a log cabin blanket but would love to do so some day.

    • My favorite log cabin is the star eyed julip which is the one I’m doing now. I love the idea that quilts become knits because my knitting is far better than my quilting.

  • I have made two log cabin blankets, one for my baby nephew and one for my so, who loves to snuggle in homemade blankets. I knit during my son’s basketball games and they are the perfect project for sports knitting.

  • I have knit a log cabin, the pattern was in th australian better homes and garden magazine. It was knit with wool from the australian yarn it is really cosy. I have ordered your log cabin guide, I am hoping it arrives by the end of this week so i can start the log cabin along.

  • LOVE the colors in this kit! After doing a couple of large blankets in shades of gray and black only – their choice not mine 🙂 – for two of my nephews the beautiful colors would be so welcome. I haven’t done a log cabin but reading about it the last week or so has really piqued my interest.

  • I am currently knitting a log cabin Afghan. Using Berroco Cotton. Not my favorite but here in Florida wool would be too heavy. Lol. Maybe not it’s 42 out right now. At least no snow ❄️
    This will be my third log cabin

    • I have done a facecloth but not a blanket. Would love to join in.

  • Have knitted a mitred square blanket and quilted a log cabin. I’m looking forward to knitting a real log cabin blanket.

  • Never have made one but would love to try! I’m a beginner And loving it!

  • I have never done a log cabin project. Yet. The yarn looks beautiful.

  • I’ve quilted a log cabin and years ago I made an afghan that was knitted triangles made separately and then had to be sewn together (ugh-queen size). It would have been nice to use some of the tips that I now know when I made it, so many ends to weave in.

    Thanks for the give-away!

  • I made a simple log cabin baby blanket years ago

  • never made a log cabin item. Would love to give it a try though!

  • I’ve never made a log cabin project before, but I have wanted to for a while.

  • I haven’t, but this looks like the perfect way to get a new addiction started!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting before but the colors, the yarn, and Snippets. I love it all. MDK has been a great source of podcast and knitting inspiration to me since I discovered it last year

  • Beautiful yarn-gorgeous pattern. Would sooooo love to make it!!!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin but it’s on my bucket list.

  • One of my favorite baby projects was a black, white and red log cabin blanket. I thought I had invented the technique but I think you might have before me 😉

  • I knit a log cabin blanket for my granddaughter in 2010. She still loves that blanket! With two more grandchildren due this year I think it’s time for me to knit another one…or two!

  • My daughter and I just picked up field guides. LOVE THEM. She went back to LA and launched right in to her log cabin blanket. She and the field guide have inspired me to start one. Would be lovely in frigid New Hampshire.

  • Yes, I made a log cabin throw using variegated yarn several years ago. It is still one of my favorite projects

  • I Have never made a log cabin blanket. It is actually one I want to do along with learning continental knitting. Two of my knitting bucket list for 2018.

  • I’ve never done a log cabin blanket. Looks like fun!

  • I’m all psyched up to knit my first log cabin as part of the log cabin knitalong, but I can’t decide what to make! I’ve just reread the log cabin section of your first book, and I want to make them all…. Now I’m about to read your field guide and I’ve got an awful feeling I’ll just want to knit all those projects as well.. Plus I’ve been perusing the Instagram postings, and there are even more ideas there! All I do know is that I have lots of stash waiting to be log cabinned, so maybe I’ll plan for a dishcloth and see if it grows into a blanket.

  • I have not ever attempted a log cabin, but I am facinated by all the imaginative uses for the pattern!

  • I’ve never done any lag cabin knitting but would like to try.

  • I would love to learn how to do log cabin knitting. To be able to knit it in ULTRA ALPACA would be so soft and warm in my wood stove heated home.

  • I’ve made two Moderne log cabins from MDK and a couple mitred crosses. It’s 45° in Miami today so I’m in the mood for more! (Hoping to finish the station wagon blanket this weekend for my dad’s 90th birthday — which was in December).

  • From the Mason-Dixon Knitting book I made the Log Cabin using sock yarn! Took forever but I truly loved it and am ready to do one again!

  • Ann and Kay, I’ve been with you ever since I bought your first book in 2007. Thanks to you I have knitted rugs, furniture slipcovers, and yes, many blankets. I have even been inspired to start quilting. But so far, I have NOT EVER LOG CABINNED. I think my time has come.

  • I made a baby-size log cabin a few years ago but never a full-size one; would enjoy giving it a go.

  • Gorgeous kit! I have never done any log cabin knitting but I’d love to do a blanket. Thanks for the opportunity to win that beautiful kit.

  • Good morning! I’ve not knitted a log cabin before — looks lovely! Have done some mitered knitting, though. Y’all stay warm! We even had snow in Tallahassee, FL on Wednesday morning!

  • I’ve made a log cabin quilt for my daughter, but the dishcloth that i’m currently knitting is my first log cabin knitting project.

  • I have never tried log cabin knitting before-never a better time to try then when it is -6 degrees in Michigan 🙂

  • Have not tried this pattern but would love to try.

  • I have made 2 Fussy Cuts blankets. The firsttook 3 years of “Walking Dead”, “Braking Bad” and road trips. The second a 9 month marathon for a gift for my daughter. My Fussy Cuts is warm and also weighty enough to get the “heavy blanket” effect. My daughter’s boyfriend and cat have taken over her blanket. And yet, I’m ready for another go, (after I make myself a sweater, because I can’t wear the Stopover to work everyday.) I thought it would be the Station Wagon Blanket but I love these colors.

  • New knitter, working my way through the dishcloths in the Field Guide!

  • What fun! My favorite, and only, log cabin was a baby blanket donated to the Linus Project.

  • I made a few log cabin quilts for friends’ babies before I started knitting, which might be why I took to log cabin dishcloths. Those were a favorite for me because as a new knitter I learned how to pick up stitches and use decreases to make the corner squares in the nine patch!

  • This is a great chance to get that log cabin project on the needles. One of my roadblocks is picking the appropriate colors for such a big project and this kit takes care of that concern beautifully.

  • I didn’t EVEN KNOW about log cabin knitting but I am intrigued and I am always looking for ways to stay warm in Canada!!

  • I have done several log cabin blankets, most recently a big squishy full size one. I think my favorite is the one I made my niece. I did 6 colorful log cabin blocks then gave them all white borders and joined them with a 3 need bind off. It’s a happy blanket!

  • I have not made a log cabin blanket but plan on doing so once I decide on pattern and yarn. Love Snippets!

  • I’ve not mad a log cabin blanket, I would love to do this project!

  • I haven’t done log cabin knitting before, but your recent postings on the subject are drawing me in.

  • I’ve made your log cabin blanket many years ago out of sugar and cream yarns, and I loced doing it.

  • I’ve made just one log cabin project…a pillow cover. It was a lot of fun, and I’m eager to try some more.

  • I made a log cabin baby blanket out of cotton once. I would much prefer the alpaca:-)

  • What a wonderful giveaway!

  • I have never done log cabin knitting before but winning this would be a great way to give it a try!

  • LOVE this! I have never done log cabin knitting! It looks so cozy!

  • Have made a log cabin sweater but would love to make this blanket!

  • I’ve never done the full log cabin blanket, but I’ve made the mitred square dishcloth again and again and again.

  • I’ve never done any log cabin knitting. This looks like a perfect chance to try it!

  • Have not done a log cabin but would love to try one

  • I’ve never knitted a log cabin anything but would absolutely love to try this beautiful blanket. Love the colors and design.

  • I have had the MD original log cabin on my queue for a long time – perhaps now I will finally cast on!

  • I have never done a nine patch, but would love to get started

  • I would be a log cabin virgin-but one eager to lose her virginity in this respect!!!

  • I’ve never done log cabin, but the weather here in New Hampshire just now is enough to convince me I absolutely need a project like this to keep me warm inside! And I love Ultra Alpaca. Please enter me!

  • I’ve never done log cabin, but I’d love to! I love trying unfamiliar things!

  • I’ve made log cabin quilts, and am excited about knitting a log cabin blanket!

  • Love the pattern and the yarn looks luchious! Look forward to Snippets each Saturday and the MDK daily.

  • I am making one now, inspired by the Field Guide #4 and it is coming along nicely. It is at a length where it is keeping me warm while I’m knitting it. Love it.

  • I have some squares completed toward my Fussy Cuts blanket, so that is my current favorite. 😉

    I did one of yours as a wedding present a decade ago, and a couple of others as prom covers along the way. About time I did another. Thanks for the chance to win, from minus 25 C Canada

  • Yes I have! Moderne Baby Blanket was my second log cabin project!

  • I have log-cabined my way through several dishcloths and a “Blanket Moderne” from your first book. Acres of garter stitch—add Sundance Now, and it’s just the ticket to pass these long, sub-zero days.

  • I have not done a log cabin design before but would love to do one. And I love berrocco yarn!

  • I need this blanket! I have Field Guide #4 and the kit to knit the dishcloths but have not gotten started. So thus instead of beginning with something small and manageable, I should definitely move to huge and overwhelming! Yes! Go big!

  • Made a log cabin bathmat from your first book. Still using it after ten years!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting but I would love to give it a try. What an awesome giveaway!

  • I’m also new to Log Cabin Knitting though I have done something similar. Would yo have a try st it!!

  • I am on my third log cabin blanket, free form with large blocks of color. One of my fav things to knit.

  • I have never done a log cabin blanket before. In fact the only blanket I have ever done I gave away. This looks like a super fun knit!!

  • I’ve log cabined once. Baby blanket for a friend. I’ve been giving SERIOUS thought to an adult sized one lately since the wind sweeping across the plains here in Oklahoma has been downright frigid.

  • Field Guide No. 4 has been my introduction to log cabin knitting and I love it! I’ve started a KAL project, just playing with it for now.

  • I made the Moderne Log Cabin Blanket

  • I have made several log cabins. 6 from the mason/dixon book peach,turq.,white,yellow. Another in shades of brown but it had different size stripes for each section. Another mitered squares 21 sts. Pastels purple, lt green, white, lt blue, lt turq. 140 squares. And several others I gave as gifts. I never get tired of log cabin. I would turn the winning yarn into a warm hug. Its -5 high 9 to day in Michigan. Live it! Nothing to do but knit knit knit…..

  • I’ve not knit a log cabin blanket, but we are getting a puppy and I thought I could make a blanket for snuggling on the couch with him!

  • I made a baby blanket with a log cabin border around a bigger rectangle and I’m currently binding off a log cabin throw.

  • I have never made a knitted log cabin
    I really want to try it.

  • Keep making dush cloth and sew them together. Cotton blankets are nice too.

  • If I were to win the kit, this will be my first log cabin. I’ve been contemplating one for a while, but just haven’t cast on yet.

  • I have never done log cabin style knitting but would love to try my hand at it

  • You could use a dk or sock weight wool to keep the chill off when the air is on.

  • I am working on my first log cabin project – the Sommerfeld Shawl – and am loving it, except for problem of picking the correct colors. The kit would be perfect because you’ve already done the hard part of picking them out!!

  • Can’t wait to try a new adventure

  • So fun! I have done a few log cabin things, and of them the two blankets have been the most fun. The first was a stash busting that resulted in the thickest, brightest blanket, and the last a freestyle for my in-laws using some handspun from their son and some local farm yarns. I liked the randomness of it. I am very intrigued by this 9 patch style, haven’t tried that yet!

  • I have used y’all’s log cabin techniques to crochet three baby blankets, all of which are still being dragged around by the recipients. I’m now crocheting a (really weird, sort of post-modern) log cabin afghan for my daughter’s apartment. I may knit one for myself next…I get cold, too!

  • My first knitted blanket was a log cabin based on the recipe in the second(?) big Mason-Dixon book. I am swatching for my next log cabin project – that Ultra Alpaca looks scrummy. Thank you so much for turning a corner with the blog and the business, it has been such fun following along! 🙂

  • I was expecting my first grandchild when your first book came out and I enthusiastically started a baby log cabin blanket. It didn’t turn out well , now years later I’m excited about trying this technique again!

  • I started a log cabin scrappy blanket, but I haven’t completed it yet. Perhaps this will be the year. 🙂

  • Newbie to log cabin knitting but would be very excited to make my first!

  • LOVE log cabin knitting. My favorite project was a set of trivets and coasters made for my about-to-be-daughter-in-law. Rich brown, warm mustard, tomatoey red, lettuce green – all felted and pretty on the table. Truthfully, maybe not that great – but the results (grandkids) are!!!!! This prize will make a great blanket for grand-daughter Matilda.

  • I have never done log cabin knitting before, but have made a log cabin quilt with fabric. I am anxious to try this with knitting. Thank you.

  • I haven’t knit a log cabin but have quilted a few. This would be a wonderful winter project.

  • I’ve made a log cabin blanket before but i wasn’t in love with the final product because of the colors I chose. Sure would be nice to have this curated collection of yarn in preselected colorways that would look fabulous together!

  • I have never done the log cabin blanket. I actually have made many blankets and love to do so. This would be a delightful new experience for me. Loving the colors and the challenge.

  • I have knit 4 car size log cabin type blankets for the grandkids. Perfect projects to just enjoy knitting!

  • I’ve never made a log cabin in knit form but I think I might have in quilt piece when I was little? The posts have been fantastic and inspiring.

  • I’ve done log cabin quilting but not knitting 🙂

  • I’m doing a log cabin project right now! It is for the fringe association knitalong. I love ultra alpaca… I need a warmer sweater stat!

  • Oh my! What a beautiful pile of yarn. I am waiting for my Field Guide #4 to arrive (on its way) at which point I will “plunge” into log cabin blanket knitting. The good thing about waiting is that I am able to finish a project! One of the best parts of receiving such a gift as this glorious pile of yarn: it would greatly help me in my dithering about colour! And just such a blanket will be much appreciated as I watch the latest snowstorm blow sideways through our town (Atlantic Canada).

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket before.

  • I’m already subscribed to snippets but I’ve have done some log cabin knitting I’ve made two modern log cabin baby blankets and I’ve made one court house steps baby blanket.

    • Oh and my favorite one was one of the modern baby blankets.

      Kelly from Gainesville, Florida

  • My favorite was the Moderne Log Cabin baby blanket I knit for my great-granddaughter 4 years ago.

    • I have never done any log cabin knitting but it looks fun.

  • I am going to join the log cabin knitalong. I’m already working on the nine patch pattern as a wedding gift. Already get all of your emails and love them all. Put me in the drawing. I love to win!❤️

  • A little shameless set promotion…I designed a log cabin wrap a few years ago called Cabin In the Woods (on Ravelry). I loved making that, and whenever I look through my copy of Mason Dixon Knitting it has me wanting to do more.
    Tempe Croke

    • “Self-promotion”, I mean!

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin blanket before, but I have done mitered squares!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin blanket, but I really, really want to! It is so beautiful!

  • I am in the homestretch of a sort of free style log cabin Big Big blanket I have been working on for 3 years! Such satisfying knitting with some beautiful Louet bulky wool. Love the idea of one with alpaca included.

  • I haven’t done log cabin knitting yet, but I know I will love it when I do. There’s nothing more soothing than garter stitch!

  • I’ve done lots of knitting, but have not yet done any log cabin knitting. This project really appeals to me, so maybe now is the time to start.

  • I have never made a log cabin blanket but I would love to with this gorgeous yarn and pattern.

  • I started a log cabin blanket years ago after doing some log cabin squares for a guild charity project. I resurrected the unfinished blanket for the Logalong, and hope to get it done this time!

  • I made Kay’s mitered crosses blanket with Noro for Japan earthquake relief. It was very addictive, and one of my most satisfying projects. And for a good cause! Thanks for supporting knitting for human kindness.

  • Already find Snippets in my email each morning (and look forward to it!). Never knew about the log cabin technique but now have a slow burn of ideas for an afghan. Love watching the group discussion and peoples samples as the log- a- thon progresses.

  • What a pretty set of colors! Haven’t yet tried log cabin, but I only have the sleeves to do on the easel sweater, so I’m about ready for a new project!

  • My favorite log cabin – no disrespect meant to my Log Cabin Runner! – to date is my ‘Log cabin for Judah,’ inspired by the Fussy Cuts blanket. With its brilliant Noro colors, it reminds me of a little Kandinsky MOMA has (she said modestly).
    But when I’m done with my Albers Cowl for the logalong, it may take over that top spot! Right now my logalong is a slogalong because I have to redo the sleeves on the Granito I’m hoping to wear to VKLive. I accidentally knit them on a 3 needle instead of a 4. There was some knitter’s denial involved.

    Looking forward to another year of loving your posts. And yes, maybe even winning one of your giveaways! Thanks!

  • My grandma knitted afghans and I love mine. Here’s a link to a photo of it: https://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/wyomingjan/14628334/Grandma_s_1929_afghan_medium2.JPG
    I would win the kit and knit one of my own!

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin blanket before, but I’d like to!

  • I’ve never explored the log cabin patterns, but would love to give them a try!

  • My favorite log cabin project is a pillow that I made with handspun yarn. I swatched a little for the log-cabin-along but I have other projects I need to finish first.

  • I am currently doing the the Logalong, but hadn’t knit any log cabins previously. I am enjoying this process.

  • I’ve knit three mitered square blankets and two Ultra Alpaca sweaters but just one little log cabin dishcloth (so far).

  • I’ve made a log cabin baby blanket from a kit and a million ends, and an adult “blown up” version that my daughters dog ate three times!

  • I’ve done log cabin baby blankets several times now, Modernism Baby Blanket by Jill Chapman is my go-to pattern. Makes a great lap robe too. Already getting snippets.

  • I’ve never done any log cabin knitting but I am really inspired by the current log along.

  • I have not knit a nine patch or log cabin blanket, but I have sewn them with fabric. Looks to be a warm project.

  • Never made a log cabin pattern before but your posts this week have inspired me

  • I’ve made a couple of squares just to do it but would love to try a blanket!!!

  • I have never knit log cabin anything before, but have been reading and re-reading the Field Guide to get the mechanics in my head. And I was drooling over the Donegal Tweed in your shop. So many decisions!

  • I knit your Mitered crosses blanket out of handspun shetland wool and it is the most warm and delightful thing ever!

  • I made a Fussy Cuts blanket for my husband several years ago for Valentine’s Day. I used a variegated yarn that created beautiful blocks. It was a labor of love! I also converted the pattern to crochet and have made several crochet blankets with the log cabin patterns. I love that geometric aspect of log cabin and the many ways of putting them together!

  • I’ve never tried log cabin, but I would love to!

  • I have only played with log cabin patterns in fabric and admired some beautiful quilt specimens. I would love to try a knitted log cabin and those winter chill busting colors are inspiring!

  • Never have knitted anything log cabin, but would love to give it a go!
    Amazing giveaway, thanks!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin knit, but I’m interested in the “portability” of a project like that!

  • I have done the original log cabin blanket in colors one of my nieces loved. I remember that for some reason, the tip that I took away from that project was to keep 2 pin markers on the blanket. Why is that? I can’t remember, I will have to make another to find out! Love ❤️ you guys.

  • I have never done Log Cabin knitting but I would like to give it a try!

  • Signed up for snipet! Have been enjoying my daily emails…I have never knit a log cabin before but I’m very intrigued and would love to get those beautiful colors!

  • I have done Log Cabin knitting and I love it. My first was your Moderne baby blanket for my sister’s first baby, who is now 6, and it is still his blankie. I did another log cabin for his younger brother. I definitely liked the Moderne better – the other last larger and fewer blocks.

  • The only log cabining I’ve done is to make all of the washcloths following Kay’s patterns in the field guide, so my kids both have colorful washcloths now. :). Would love the opportunity to knit this gorgeous blanket to cosy up with during this long cold winter here in Nashville. Love this website and all that y’all do. -MaryBeth

  • Great giveaway. Yes, I did a log cabin knitting project once, but it was so long ago I can’t remember what it was! Seems I NEED to win so I can start a new project.

  • My favorite log cabin project? The one I’m working on–when I work on one. I’ve made some log cabin blocks and a 9-patch blanket or two. I have a scrappy wool log-cabin block project started 🙂 very fun!

  • I’ve never made a log cabin anything, but really like the idea of being able to start small and build. would love your kit to get me started!

  • I have never log-cabinned before but just cast on a dishcloth to experiment! I have been drawn to it for a while, partly because my grandparents were Amish and as such, all things of beauty had to be useful. The quilts and home furnishings they made were incredible and when I knit, I feel a real kinship with those who have gone before me. I’ve been wanting to start a winter log cabin knitting project but felt a little daunted by the hurdle of selecting and buying yarn. This set looks awesome and I would love to help it to its intended destiny of becoming a gorgeous blanket!
    And I’ve drooled a bit over the book too!

  • Well, a gazillion years ago, I started a Miterd Crosses Blanket https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mitered-crosses-blanket-for-mercy-corps, but it has been in timeout for a few years. I would love an opportunity to win the kit. The -6ºF with a windchill of -20ºF would be useful this time of year! 🙂

  • Inspired by you all over the years, I’ve done a fair amount of log cabin knitting, but I would say my favorite was one I did while we were moving. It was all one color, so the “wrong side” with the pick up ridges was the interesting side. I loved it because it was a source of sanity in a crazy time period.

  • Never have done Log Cabin. Am making something from your Sequence Book so I’m sure the Log Cabin would be just as amazing.

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin blanket but plan to start one this month with some beautiful Rowan superwash in my stash—unless I win this kit!

  • I’ve quilted a log cabin but have never knit one. What a great giveaway!

  • Never done any log cabin knitting, but I would love to try!!

  • Another log cabin newbie, apparently there are lots of us! I hope you both will be warm and safe this winter.

  • i HAVE NEVER DONE LOG CABIN BEFORE BUT WOULD LOVE TO GIVE IT A TRY!

  • I have never made a log cabin blanket, but I am ready to try!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting, but the 9-patch blanket seems to be calling my name.

  • I’ve made log cabin blanket patches and washcloths, but a summer shirt using the technique intrigues me.

  • I have never made a log cabin blanket and would love the experience of completing one with the group to encourage me

  • I made a log cabin blanket last winter. It was a nice, mostly mindless project project to work on.

  • i made a log cabin baby blanket based on Irina Poludnenko’s colorful slip stitch pattern. It made a real heirloom baby present. Have been eying the log cabin shawl that you posted this summer, too.

  • I’ve done 2 moderne baby blankets…both were hits!

  • I have never done log cabin and am actually having shoulder surgery today at 11:00. My family is more concerned about the no knitting for two months than the surgery. What a project to come home to when I heal!!!

  • I love to log cabin. I’ve made three log cabins (from your first book) for three special boys. I made them 5-6 years ago and they are still using and loving them.

  • I made two bathmats from the Mason Dixon Book many years ago!

  • Never ever done anything log cabin (except sleep in one several times). I confess I can’t figure it out—the LC process. But I’ve got the FG and plan to try the wash cloths, if only to be able to read my beloved MDK missives every day.

  • I haven’t knit a log cabin blanket before, but this takes me back to my childhood when my mamaw and I pieced a 9-patch quilt top that resembles the log cabin 🙂

  • Hmmm. I guess I’ve never done a log cabin knitting project before but I love log cabins in quilting and have made lots of projects with them.

  • Have never tried a cabin blanket. Reading your daily email has inspired me to knit more and tackle new techniques.

  • My favorite (to date) lot cabin project has been Ann Weaver’s Albers Cowl. It is a pattern that bears repeating.

  • I made my nephew a moderne log cabin blanket from your first book. He used it to keep warm when he had his tonsillectomy. So it was a very successful project!

  • Doing one now.

  • Log cabin is on my 2018 list of things to learn – would love to make something as lovely as the blanket you are showing.

  • I have a log cabin WIP somewhere in my house. But now I’m planning to join Fringe and Friends logalong. I have a small (throw pillow) but intense design in my head…

  • I am working on log cabin knitting in the form of Ann Weaver’s Albers Cowl. I have one more block to go….unless I decide to make it an Albers Shawl.

  • My mother used to have a log cabin quilt on her bed. I’ve loved them ever since!

  • I have not done a log cabin blanket but think that would be a fun project to knit (and to own)

  • I started a Fussy Cuts blanket in an effort to use my stash of Noro Silk Garden. It was addictive. Then the nine squares I had finished were lost in a house fire. Dang.

  • One of my favorite yarns! I’ve made a cardigan of mitered squares that’s patchwork if not log cabin. Great fun to knit.

  • I’ve completed a mitered-corner, striped blanket, but never a log cabin. It seems daunting in size though the technique seems quite doable. But if I win, I’ll do it!!

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin project, only quilted ones. I hope to cast on the Albers cowl soon.

  • I made a log cabin afghan for my husband’s new chair and loved doing it. He says it’s so warm and cozy. I also did smaller patches to protect the arms. What a wonderful, fun technique!

    • I made a log cabin patch quilt years ago, but have never knitted one. It would be fun to try!

  • I did a bunch of free-form for A4A. Then I did the one out of the MDK book for a wedding present. Loved the MDK pattern but my favorites were the free-form in bright colors.

    Tx for doing this!

  • Log cabin dish cloths. Eager to do a blanket.

  • The only Log Cabin knitting I’ve done was via adding small borders to two blankets I’ve made, but I’d love to do a full blanket in this style!

  • I jump at any chance to win yarn. The only upside to the freezing temps in the Chicago area is that I get to wear all my wool hand knits!

  • I’ve looked, but haven’t done a log cabin blanket by knitting. I quilted one ages ago.

  • I have done at least one log cabin quilt – a baby blanket for a great/grand?-nephew, and another one years ago. I have to make something for a convention donation in a year or so – would love to win this and donate the blanket to that – benefits literacy. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • I’ve never completed a log cabin before but I’ve been dying for a blanket forever!!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting. When I was younger I made a lot cabin quilt with strips of fabric. So much fun!

  • I made a Joseph’s Blankie of Many Colors for my daughter when she was a baby (she’s now 10). I made it with 100% cotton yarn, I would make it in wool next time. I also contributed to a Moderne for a friend’s baby, our knitting group collaborated on it. I keep thinking of making a queen or king size one for us…maybe in the colors of Piet Mondrian? That pattern is a blockbuster. 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I’ve not done a formal log cabin, but I’ve made a blanket that is kind of like this…but oh how I LOVE it!!!! Please pick me!!!!!

  • Your log cabin patterns have been an inspiration from when I was a new knitter. I love the geometric magic of them. I don’t think there is anything more satisfying than watching the magic unfold in your lap as you knit.

  • I’ve made (and/or designed) several log cabin blankets. As you know, they are addictive. My favorite is one that will be published this coming March!

  • The first Log Cabin I made was for a soon-to-be-born baby, who is now 10 years old. While I used only off-white fingering weight acrylic, the finished afghan was luxurious, not only in feel, but very much in appearance. I have since lost count on how many such afghans I have whipped up, both knit and crochet; they’re a great way to use the odds & ends one finds in her yarn collection!

  • I have done log cabin knitting and would love this kit. The blanket is beautiful!

  • During my quilting phase, I taught and made log cabin quilts. But never have I knit a log cabin. Perhaps it is time.

  • I’ve been wanting to make a log cabin blanket but the picking up of stitches is keeping me from it. I need to get just get over it and cast on!

  • I have never knit a log cabin blanket but would love to! The photos are gorgeous!

  • Yes, Moderne baby blanket, great knit!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting before but always thought it looked interesting. Love all the colors–need that in winter.

  • I have not actually finished a log cabin project — but I have two in progress. Both are blankets, one in Noro Kureyon and one in Manos del Uruguay, the yarn now called Clasica.

  • I love log cabin & mitered squares both, separately or together, whatever! I’ve made dishcloths, blankets. I became somewhat obsessed after starting the MDK Mitered Square Afghan for Japan when it first came out. It also started my love of Noro. I have a log cabin cotton blanket in progress.

  • I have never knitted a log cabin anything… but those colors of your yarns are absolutely gorgeous so I would definitely try it!! Thank you so much for the giveaway. I already am subscribed to your emails and Snippets and read every one!

  • Haven’t done one yet but sounds wonderful in these frigid temps!

  • I have never made a log cabin blanket, but I am eager to get started.

  • I’ve done a couple inspired by kay’s Long ago blanket on the blog. I also have a moderne in the WIP pile.

  • I’m new to log cabin.Seemslike perfect winter activity.

  • I have not done a log cabin blanket but really enjoy your ideas.

  • It looks so challenging. With that said, I’ve never made a log cabin blanket before but I’d sure like to it. Sort of a scary thing but you want to do it so much, like the Ferris wheel at the amusement park.

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket but I’ve been drooling over all of the ideas between you guys and Karen at Fringe…this kit would be amazing!

  • I’ve never made one, but I sure could give it a try!!

  • I love log cabin knitting and have knitted a variety of log cabin patterns. From dishcloths to blankets. I knitted my son a denim Curve of Pursuit blanket (log cabin knitting with long triangles instead of rectangles) after seeing a picture of it in your first MDK book. My favorite way to knit log cabin though is changing colors after knitting the center and then again after knitting all four sides in one color, etc. Love the nine-patch squares too, especially paired with the Ultra Alpaca and color way 2 of the kit (which I test knitted for Field Guide No. 4). Log Cabin Knitting should be required knitting!

  • After crocheting blankets and quilting a log cabin, I’m looking forward to knitting a log cabin blanket!

  • Never done a log cabin before, but knit quite a bit. I do have on my bed a patchwork strip coverlet designed by a friend

  • I’ve made many blankets, but never a Log Cabin Blanket. I’d love to give it a try. After ten+ days of -25 wind chills here in Wisconsin, I believe the more blankets the better!

  • Log cabin knitting is my most favorite, and it is how I first discovered Kay & Ann. It subsequently led to an online friendship with knitter Yolanda (@gravesgapknitter) after an MDK post about ‘blankets on a hill’. https://www.masondixonknitting.com/blankets-on-a-hill/
    My most favorite log cabin project is the Peaches & Creme cotton multi-colored baby blanket I made after seeing that post. I would love to make the 9-patch, thx!!!!

  • I have made/working on a mitered square blanket and have sewn several log cabin items but have not yet knitted a log cabin anything.

  • I’ve never made a blanket, but it would be fun to take on this project.

  • I’m starting my first log cabin blanket because of your site! Happy knitting this winter.

  • I started a log cabin blanket a while ago but put it aside because I didn’t like my color combination. I love you ultra alpaca colors!

  • 6

  • Have made log cabin quilts but would live to knit one. Thank you for a giveaway to keep us warm in the chilly weather.

  • I’ve done a little lot cabin – could be called a swatch could be called a hot pad. It was fun to do. Ideas keep percolating – some day there will be a large project.

    • Log – can’t type

  • I’ve never done any log cabin knitting before, but I’ve wanted to try it for a long time. 2018 seems like a good time to start!

  • While I have never done a Log Cabin project I am an obsessive test patch kinda gal. This knit-along has inspired me to standardize the sizes of all future patches for eventual use as a memory blanket of projects past!

  • I love Ultra Alpaca – great colors and it wears well. I haven’t attempted Log Cabin, since I’m terrible at picking up stitches neatly, but now that I have seen some smaller-scale log cabin projects I might give it a shot.

  • I have only made log cabin quilts, would love to make s knitted log cabin blanket. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • I have made log cabin dishcloth & am working on an Albers cowl. This would be a yarn dream come true!!!!

  • I’m currently knitting the MDK Moderne Log Cabin Blanket and love the garter vastness. I started it last year and it’s just big enough to keep me warm while knitting. Happy New Year MDK!

  • I love the idea of a quilt pattern translated into knitting. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • I’ve never done any log cabin knitting projects, but I have quilted a few log cabin quilt block quilts. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome kit!

  • I’ve made 3 Log Cabin blankets – all from your book! The modern baby blanket for nieces and nephew. Well loved and well used blankets!

  • Oh wow, this is awesome! I have also been wearing my cardigan made from ultra alpaca the last few days here in chilly Michigan and it sure is warm! I believe the only log cabin item I’ve ever knitted is a few improvised potholders years ago just to try out the technique. I’d love to try a blanket!

  • I purchased your Log Cabin book in November and set to work on my trial swatch with stash yarn immediately. Loved it! Had to put it aside for gift-along. Ready to start in again on a blanket for the Snuggles Project soon.

  • I’ve tried log cabins but haven’t finished any yet!

  • Thanks to your first MDK book I was able to finish a very special blanket using your Log Cabin pattern. The original knitter was knitting for his his son’s first birthday but sadly the father died before he finished. I was honored to knit this blanket. I revisited Log cabin knitting again in December to make my mother wash clothes for a spa gift basket. Thanks MDK!

  • Never tried log cabin knitting but looks like fun. What a fun project to start a new year.

  • For all the knitting I have done I have to confess that I have not tried to knit log cabin anything. Miter square, yes, but log cabin, no. I have the books and I love garter stitch so there is no excuse! That doesn’t mean that I haven’t been tempted because I also love how it looks. So much knitting fun to try and so little time to do it all.

  • I haven’t tried log cabin yet, but it’s on my list.

  • I’ve never done a log cabin knitting project

  • I’ve never knitted a log cabin but have been sucked into the log cabin madness by the KAL and love how relaxing it is, it’s very zen. I say the same about knitting lopapeysas so what do I know 😉

  • I haven’t knit a log cabin blanket, yet, although I have sewn one. (I have knitted a small mitered crosses blanket.) And I’ve accumulated several log cabin patterns in my library. But a log cabin blanket in Ultra Alpaca? That is a scrumptious project to immediately cast on! Yummmm…

  • I’ve made a small lap blanket, log cabin style, as a gift. I would love to do a bigger one.

  • I’m working on my knitting while braving the cold in clarksville, TN ( not too far from Nashville), too. I knew there was log cabin quilting, but had never heard of log cabin knitting until now. Excited to try it!

  • Years ago I made a baby size log cabin blanket. Don’t know why I haven’t done more – it was fun. An Ultra Alpaca blanket would be amazing.

  • I have never done Log Cabin Knitting but it is beautiful and I would love to make a blanket.

  • While I have done lots of color block intarsia, this will be the first time for log cabin knitting. What an inspiration this will be.

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin, but it’s on my list. I have made a log cabin quilt, back in 1980, which was dearly loved and is no more. I have another quilt in process right now. Have the field guide, and saw the pattern from your post – very cool!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting, but I am anxious to get started.

  • I’ve never made a log cabin project, but know there is one in my future. Love Ultra Alpaca and the fact that it comes in a variety of weights.

  • I have done log cabin sewing before but never knitting.

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket before. I wanted to join the knitalong but froze up when I couldn’t decide what color/yarn to use. I’d love to have a starting point with this kit!

  • I did a log cabin baby blanket- so cute!

  • Two moderne log cabins for friends’ babies. It was so much fun.

  • I’ve only practiced by doing log cabin dishcloths. The time is coming to do a blanket sized project.

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin but my fingers get itchy to make one sometimes. I’m too lazy to pull together some colors and just dive in but I’m really tempted this time to just do it!

  • I love log cabins. My favorites; baby moderne log cabin, which I made for my son, and Norah Gaughan’s Bright Star, which was mostly knitted in my partner’s hospital room as he was recovering from a serious stroke. I’m currently making Mitered Crosses.

  • I have never done a log cabin and am looking forward to the challenge

  • Would love to win this, if Canadians are included. I already receive snippets and the daily email. Thank you!

  • I’ve done some small scale log cabin knitting on dishrags before, but I’ve really fallen in love with it this week as I’ve started a blanket for the logalong. I can’t seem to stop. Just one more section…

  • I have always loved the log cabin blankets in your book but have never made one. Between your new blankets and the fringeandfriendslogalong, I am once again inspired to try making one.

  • no log cabin knitting, but plenty of log cabin quilting! stay warm, ya’ll!

  • I knit a log cabin doll blanket for my granddaughter years ago. It was really a practice piece but she thought it was for her doll so it was. I’ve also done a log cabin quilt but more years ago than I care to admit. Right now a nine patch log cabin blanket sounds like just the thing to warm up these cold, cold days.

  • I’m ashamed to say, I’ve never knit a log cabin blanket before. ‍♀️ I know! I know… it’s time!

  • I love making log cabin baby blankets. You can use a lovely mix of colors suitable for either a boy or a girl. And it can be as big or as small as you want.

  • I love making log cabin blankets — they’re so addictive! My first blanket was a Modern Log Cabin, and then I made a traditional log cabin. Now I’m on my third blanket, which is also traditional, but I changed up the size and arrangement of the strips of color.

  • Oh! Log cabin wonderfulness! I’m knitting my first log cabin-a Sommerfield wrap for the Fringe and Friend KAL. You were right, it’s addictive!

  • The Moderne Baby Blanket was my first log cabin. I’ve done two. But I think my favorite is the Mitred Crosses for Japan. So fun to knit and really beautiful.

    • Oh, and I made an Albers Cowl with Neighborhood Fiber Company Yarn.

  • I knit the Star-eyed Julep Throw! It was addictive and lovely

  • Already look forward to Saturday Snippets every week. I made two different log cabin blankets – one in cotton for my grandson, the other for my son/DIL in wool which felted so beautifully in washing.

  • I’m finally finishing my moderne log cabin blanket that I started years ago after finding it while unpacking after a recent move. It’s such a great project for this super cold weather. A project that keeps me warm while it’s still in the works!!!!

  • I made a log cabin blanket once and it is my very favorite blanket and always gets compliments!

  • I am currently crocheting the Sunny Log Cabin Blanket from Lucy of Attic24 – what fun! Knitting is my first love, so I would like to try that next.

  • I have never done log cabin knitting but have admired the patterns in my Mason Dixon knitting books. Winning this would give me the incentive to try it!!

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting before, but some of the examples you’ve provided are stunning. I’ve also never participated in a knit along because I’m an extremely slow knitter and the thought of keeping up with a knit along makes me anxious!

  • Only one, a log cabin shawl, in Noro Silk Garden. It was great fun to knot.

    • Little typo—I meant it was great fun to knit.

  • I have only logcabinned a dishcloth….a blanket would be interesting??? To say the least!!! Love the yarn colors…they are happy

  • I have knit a Log Cabin blanket. It was lots of knitting, but it gave me a great chance to be creative with a lot of different colors of yarn. I get a ton of compliments…and it’s so nice to wrap up in on cold evenings!

  • Never knit a log cabin blanket, but raring to go with those beautiful colors!
    Already signed up for snippets

  • Unfortunately, I have not yet done a lot cabin blanket. I am already a subscriber to snippets, love it! I started knitting about a year ago and have been really wanting to make a blanket. I never even knew log cabin blankets existed till I saw the Log Cabin Field Guide came out (that is right about the time I first found you guys and discovered what a field guide was!) and I have desired that guide since I first saw it. I have been enviously following the log cabin KAL info that has been out there since you guys announced it!

  • I started a work in progress blanket to use up some stash, but I’m not happy with the color scheme at the moment, so it’s waiting for some new inspiration … maybe this is the ticket? 🙂

  • The only log cabin knitting I’ve done is my Absorba bath mat and a little dishcloth I did to practice continental knitting. The colors in your kit will fit right into my house so I hope I win!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin knitting project before. My next project, however, is a log cabin baby blanket, inspired by MDK’s love of log cabin.

  • I just finished the wash clothes made with bits and pieces of cotton leftovers. I am currently making a blanket using worsted weight leftovers. It would be wonderful to use that lovely yarn.

  • I’ve knitted lots of blankets, but never log cabin. Nor quilted one either. I really like the colors you chose for the kit, bright, yet subdued.

  • I made a Kureyon log cabin blanket a while ago. https://www.ravelry.com/projects/DorothySnarker/paintbox-log-cabin-blanket

  • I’m working on a “pseudo” long cabin blanket right now! I started with mitered squares, got up to 25, and got tired of it, so I switched to log cabin strips along the outside. I never realized how addicting it is, but I’ve already started planning my next one! :O

  • I’ve never done a log cabin knitting project, but I have done some log cabin quilting. Usually a traditional log cabin block with a red center..

  • Just purchased the Log Cabin Field Guide two days ago so I can start making some of these amazing patterns.

  • Never done log cabin knitting before either, but it’s never too late to take on a new project 🙂

  • I have never knitted a log cabin blanket, but always like to try new things!

  • Working on a ninepatch right now as part of the knitalong. I’m trying to use up a stash of vintage wool, some dating back to the 1960’s. Had to get ”creative” with the color choices, but I think I’ve balanced the brighter and darker colors pretty well. I’ve also got the feeling I may have enough yarn to to 2 blankets. Stay warm!

  • I have never knitted a log cabin pattern but I have quilted one. It was so fascinating how many different patterns that could be created by the way the blocks were put together. I would love to knit one.

  • I am working on a log cabin style blanket of yarn in undyed wool, mostly handspun, and it’s beautiful!

  • I made the Moderne log cabin baby blanket in Provence CEY cotton nearly 12 years ago for my nephew. I loved the way the garter stitch feels, and the indentations it makes when you fall asleep with your cheek on it. I would love to try log cabin in a springy yarn like Ultra Alpaca!

  • I have a longstanding (and long languishing) Log Cabin WIP—a blanket which is nearly done. This Logalong might just be the inspiration I need to finish it. I’ve also been collecting odd skeins of Noro Silk Garden to make another blanket inspired by MDK.

  • I have never knit a log cabin blanket. I love the beautiful colors in your kit!

  • I’ve made a Moderne baby blanket, and several log cabin dish cloths. I’m thinking hard about a log cabin hat to use all the scraps I have from other hat-making endeavors!

  • I’ve only made a log cabin dishcloth….

  • I’ve made a couple of Log Cabin dishcloths and also a rectangular scarf knit in a similar module way. I love the scarf. It was fun to knit and the color block pattern is bright and cheerful to wear.

  • I’ve been knitting for 55 years and have never knitted a log cabin, although I have quilted one. So excited to try!

  • I have made a log cabin before but not like these, it would be fun to try this. The best part I enjoyed was how they connected to each other.

  • I have had log cabin fever but unbelievably have never done a knitted log cabin project! This situation has to be fixed =)

  • I have been doing log cabin dishcloths ever since buying your first book. They are my go to housewarming and hostess gift. People love them! I also made a custom bath mat with the pattern that has stood the test of time. The upcoming logalong has inspired me to branch out and try something new. Fiddling with a cardigan right now… we’ll see…

  • I made a simple log cabin baby blanket a number of years ago and enjoyed the process. If I were to do another, I think I’d try Courthouse Steps.

  • I’ve quilted a few log cabin baby quilts, knit and quilted log cabin baby bibs, and knit log cabin warsh/dishcloths, a small blanket, squares for a community blanket and about 2/3 of a scarfy, shawly thing that I keep meaning to finish… Maybe this year! Already get the snippets.

  • This would be my first log cabin

  • I would like to see Shirley from Australia get the kit. She mentions knitting the Better House and Garden (Australian) magazine log cabin and it was quite a pattern. I don’t know Shirley, but every Australian of Anglo or Indigenous background had a cousin, aunt or friend Shirley and they are always ‘true blue’, ‘bonza’ and ‘fair dinkum’.

    I have knitted many log cabins but struggled to get really good casting on until I picked up with smaller needles and took very pink knits refresher advice on you tube.

    I would love the kit, but I would really love Shirley to have it more. Again, I don’t know her, but I ‘know’ what she is like and she deserves it in my humble opinion.

  • I haven’t made a log cabin yet but do have one on the needles. Doing large blocks and using scrap yarn so may not be the colors I prefer but it’ll still keep us warm.

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin blanket but an alpaca/wool version is JUST the thing we need right now. We’ve had little to no winter in OK for the last few years but I think we might make up for it this year. Brrr!

  • I have done several log cabin blankets. My favorite was Bonbori Log Cabin Throw. I’ve also done a 9-patch knitted blanket.

  • I have knitted the moderne log cabin blanket twice! Once in lime green, turquoise, and royal blue for preteen daughter! The other one I crocheted in autumnal shades of leftover worsted weight. I love that pattern.

  • Made a few years ago, the patchwork log cabin blanket is a family favorite. I need to start collecting Noro again to make another.

I’m going to practice with dishcloths, then try the blanket and finally the Sommerfield shawl. The shawl kit and field guide 4 arrived yesterday.

  • Dishcloths!

  • I’ve started several but never made it to a finished project. This might be the year!!!

  • Never done a log cabin before. Never done a blanket before. Would love to do this!

  • I’ve knitted one log cabin project, so it’s my favorite. I made an Albers Cowl (pattern by Ann Weaver) from a gorgeous Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply yarn kit. It was fun knitting, and it looks beautiful.

  • I’m new to knitting log cabin patterns so I’m ready to give this one a try!

  • I knitted your Modern Log Cabin baby afghan as a gift. Fun project!

  • Hi! I’ve never done a log cabin blanket, but I’ve done other blankets that I loved knitting. 🙂

  • What a great giveaway! I’m already signed up for Snippets~and log cabin: I’ve inky done log cabin squares in a modular set up for a scarf, so doing a big one for family sharing would be great !

  • Have never done a log cabin blanket and would love to try!

  • I have not tried making a log cabin blanket and would love to learn this new technique. Thank you for this opportunity!

  • never made a log cabin – I do have Field Guide 4 – might be the push I need to get started !

  • New to log cabin “knitting” – love the creative possibilities!

  • Ooh lovely giveaway! I’ve done mitred squares before but not in a blanket.

  • I have yet to knit a log cabin anything but have coveted several blankets I have seen. The many color options and size have scared me off. Am contemplating giving it a go after having seen so many lovely starts on the Instagram.

  • I never have done anything log cabiny, but have eyed your modern log cabin blanket longingly for years. I’d love to win this – the deadline is on my birthday!

  • Such a beautiful blanket! I’ve done a few log cabin dishcloths and am ready to branch out to something bigger.

  • My first foray into Log Cabin knitting was after I bought Field Guide #4 and made a few dish cloths. Then I made 10 more for Christmas stocking stuffers. The process is addictive.

  • I made a log cabin baby blanket for my daughter, inspired by your Moderne Log Cabin blanket! Your first book also turned me on to the work of Debbie New. I have been itching to make a log cabin sweater like hers for years… Maybe 2018 is the year!

  • I’ve done several moderne baby blankets and LOVED the process and the finished product.

  • I have never knit a log cabin blanket but am looking forward to a competition with my quilting sister!

  • So far my only log cabin knitting has been a couple of experimental dishcloths. The technique definitely intrigues me!

  • I started a log cabin, but then something else caught my eye…

  • I have a Moderne Log Cabin blanket in progress. This is my only log cabin project. It was started in 2010, intended for my son’s bed at college. He graduated a few years ago. Somehow I mis-calculated and instead of being dorm room bed size, it is almost queen size. The last two squares with the intarsia are about 1/3 done. This is the winter I should get it finished.

  • I have never made a log cabin blanket. But we do have a cabin on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada that we built in the 60s.

  • I have only done a Log Cabin in “fabric” but this looks fun to do. I’m doing “unconventional” baby blankets right now and this would fit right in.

  • I haven’t made a log cabin blanket before…but I’m pretty inspired. I do have 84 pieced log cabin blocks that need to be made into a quilt. Maybe I should do that first? Nah!

  • have not done log cabin knitting yet but want to learn. Would love to win the kit.

  • I’m knitting log cabin squares as I have yarn leftovers. 6 squares done so far. I love keeping the memories of all that yarn alive in a blanket.

  • I have done log cabin knitting in the past, including bibs, throw pillows, and blankets

  • I made my first Log Cabin blanket for my nephew’s arrival in 2007 following the Moderne Log Cabin blanket formula published in the Curious Knitters Guide using pastel colors of Lion Brand Cotton-Ease. My husband liked it so much, I used the left-overs to knit him a blanket. Like all things that are warm, cuddly, and belong to someone else, that blanket was appropriated by my then five-year old son. It has been repaired several times and still has its place at the foot of his bed. I then made another blanket for my DH using more “mature” colors of Lion Brand Cotton-Ease: think khaki green, red, black, and cream. It would be awesome to knit a Log Cabin blanket in Berroco Ultra Alpaca for me!

  • Just finished my first log cabin blanket and had such fun making it!

  • Oh how I love the log cabin pattern! I have not ever knit a log cabin/9 patch, but I have quilted many.

  • The little item I’m making for the slog along is my first log cabin knitting ever. I can’t say the same for log cabin quilting. I’m addicted to that.

  • I have made half hearted attempts to do log cabin, but they dove right back into UFO hell! I realize it was the fiber that was unpleasant and not much in the cooperation department. I am ready to tackle this project
    Thanks for the chance!
    Big hugs
    Kate

  • Just got the book
    Waiting to start
    Have done quilted log cabins!

  • Just got your field guide — love this kit! Thank you!

  • No I have not knit a log cabin blanket before but they are beautiful to look at I would love the opportunity to knit one. Having some beautiful yarn would certainly help make it happen.

  • I have made several log cabin patterns as it is my favourite, a few pillow tops, baby blankets etc. I have two in progress. One has two large squares, one square is red, white and black, the other is a reddish brown, brown and green made with an aran weight, and plan to do two more, one with yellow and purple, not sure about the other one. The second is going to be a scarf or shawl made from Noro fingering. Going to make 12 or 14″ square and will decide later the shape. Its my take-a-long project when I can only work on something simple like garter. Happy New Year and love your emails. 🙂

  • I made a log cabin baby blanket. It was great fun and the instructions provided in your first book were fabulous! I have always loved log cabin quilts and their variations. Although I am not a quilter, I love that I can knit those blocks!

  • I’ve made several log cabin afghans through the years. It’s so much fun! Thanks for the chance to win some lovely yarn to do your latest nine patch one!

  • I’m a quilter so have made some log cabin quilts before. I’m also a knitter who has never made an afghan or knitted blanket. About time I tried!

  • What a beautiful work! I have not knitted in this style before. It looks very interesting.

  • I designed my own log cabin baby blanket once, to use up all the leftovers of a beautiful organic cotton yarn that I had used for several other baby blankets. What a great way to combine all sorts of colors into one coherent piece! Sadly, I did not take a photo of it.

  • Log cabin quilt but not knit….would love to have the opportunity. Happy 2018 to all at MDK!

  • Looks beautiful, have never knit log cabin but would love to

  • Have never done any log cabin knitting. Just the quilt kind. I need to do mitered warm ups to finish another project so have been eyeballin’ the log cabin makealong.

  • Feels like temp is -8°… Ninepatch blanket would sure come in handy!!

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin pattern before, the Coro changes look beautiful!

  • I have never knitted a log cabin anything. I have admired and thought about it for sure.

  • Ooooohh….A giveaway! Who can resist? The closest I’ve come to a Log Cabin is the Mitered Crosses afghan from about 6 years ago….or was it 7? I’ve done a log cabin quilt (which was fun in that it was for my son and DIL. Fondling cotton fabric doesn’t have the same…you know…… luscious texture running through my fingers). I’m anxious to knit a log cabin and love alpaca anything!

  • Have never knitted anything log cabin style nor anything bigger than an Afghan. Sitting in a rental condo in Florida without heat, I could sure use a log cabin blanket. Hope I win—typing this while wearing fingerless gloves!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin but want to try!

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin blanket before, but I’ve always wanted to!

  • Never knit a log cabin, but sounds like FUN!

  • Log cabin quilts yes, log cabin knitting no. Excited to try!

  • I have patterns but I have never knit a log cabin. I am intrigued with Kay’s plans and I would love a sweater. If my kids saw me knitting a blanket, they may lose their minds because two of them have asked for a blanket!.

  • I’ve never knitted a nine patch, but I’d love to give it a try!

  • I’ve never knit log cabin before on purpose, but I have bound off and picked up on plain squares or chunks of knitting before when I was young and learning to knit, not knowing what exactly I was doing (and with no real plan!)

    I have started a proper log cabin blanket though! I’m just doing larger squares of courthouse steps motifs in undyed wool, so things don’t get too unruly. It’s fun!

  • All ready look forward to your Saturday morning snippets!!!! Have never knit a log cabin pattern but look forward to the blanket project with that wonderful kit. We have had our first snow in 30 years here in Savannah so I’m thinking warm blanket in fresh beachy colors would be perfect!!!!

  • My son received one as a baby gift from his paternal grandmother. I feel like I should keep up the tradition if and when there’s a grandchild.

  • hello friends, i have made and collected log cabin quilts! but never yet knitted one! so i am excited and ready to start the knit along. thank you for all the ideas!!!!!!

  • As a quilter turned knitter, a log cabin knit is in my future. Love the colors!

  • I’ve never knitted a log cabin pattern before, but I’d love to give it a try.

  • I am so excited to knit this blanket!!

  • I’ve done the Baby Moderne blanket three times now. Here’s a link to the latest one I made for my niece born in June 2017. http://www.foxyknitter.com/2017/02/finished-baby-blanket.html

  • I’ve not done Log Cabin knitting, but I would be absolutely thrilled to start now. What a beautiful heirloom this would be for my 3 daughters!

  • Hi there from frozen Michigan! I’ve knit socks, sweaters, vests, berets & other warm-wear for heads, mittens, assorted scarves, and even one Teddy bear. Somehow, I’ve neglected to knit a blanket. It’s not going to warm up anytime soon. A cuddly something to knit while trying to ignore the hum of the furnace and the spin of the gas meter is just the right thing to do.

  • I made a wonderfully warm log cabin blanket out of a bulky mohair/wool yarn. It’s been doing a great job of keeping me warm through this frigid spell!

  • Log cabin is great. My absolute favorite is my A Light in the Window blanket out of wool yarn stash leftovers! I’ve also crocheted two smaller log cabin lap blankets; each was one big log cabin square.

  • I have never knitted a log cabin blanket but I can’t wait to try!

  • I have never knitted a log cabin pattern but have a strong interest in knitting patterns that resemble traditional quilt patterns.

  • What a great way to start 2018! I have several log cabins in my head but none have ever made it to my needles given a stunning lack of stash. Can’t imagine how glorious it would feel to snuggle under alpaca. Given this weather, I’d probably stay put until summer! (You can knit under a blanket – I know!)

  • I knit the Snazzy Bath Rug using rag balls, had a lot of old sheets and two 4 year old grand sons who loved tearing the sheets,not so good at making the balls though.

  • I have never done log cabin knitting before, but this could be the jumpstart I need!

  • I have never knitted anything like this before.

  • I’ve never made a log cabin anything but I plan on doing something log cabin this year. I love the idea of picking up stitches and not seeing:) the mitered squares blanket is interesting!

  • I’m making a log cabin blanket now using leftover worsted an DK yarns. It’s a little wonky but cute!

  • Long time knitter but never attempted log cabin however am in need of a baby blankie and a blankie for the mom. Perfect duo and not the usual baby stuff. Baby boy and mom perfect for this project. Thx for reading and offering.
    Happy New Year

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting (though in an optimistic moment several years ago I purchased yarn to make a log cabin blanket). Perhaps this is the year!

  • Log cabin quilts, but not a knitted log cabin.

  • I had a Log Cabin Quilt that my grandmother had made before I was born. I wore it out. It was perfect, I have always love the pattern.

  • I fell in love with Ultra Alpaca after finding two skeins at Goodwill and making a hat with each. I can only imagine how nice a blanket would be! Win or not the posting updates on the Log Cabin blanket are amazing. 🙂

  • Would love to try a log cabin blanket.

  • I have never knitted a log cabin blanket, but am looking forward to it! When I was a little girl, I would sit with my great grandmother and go through her fabrics while we talked about quilting…a lovely memory. 🙂

  • I made a modified version of the baby blanket from the original MDK book. I also started log cabin-ing a bunch of squares once, with the intent of seaming together to make an area rug…yeah, that never happened…

  • I’ve never done a log cabin blanket before. But I think it would be a fun project to get through this winter!

  • I made a log cabin baby blanket for a friend’s baby girl. Lily is now in 3rd grade and still has it on her bed. it’s well loved!

  • so generous! thank you…asymmetrical striped baby blankets have been my jam of late

  • Never made a Log Cabin blanket but I have four cats that love blankets so I would love to start one!

  • I have knit a log cabin pattern once, many years ago. It was from a hand-sketched pattern given to me by my mother. I have no idea the name of the pattern or where she got it but it was my first big knitting project and so satisfying

  • I did an adaptation to a log cabin pattern provided by Purl Soho, which was one of our charity projects. Would love to do another for myself!

  • Have one in the UFO category from about 5 years ago.

  • So cool!! I have never done a log cabin before but would totally be down for this!

  • I have never knitted a log cabin blanket but would love to try it! Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  • I made a potholder with the log cabin technique. Two potholders actually. I had to sew them together to get the thickness required. I need a simple project to work on as I care for my mother especially if it can keep warm at the same time.

  • I have never done log cabin knitting, but would like to start—I’ve Baden quilt blocks and I think log cabin is the only way I will ever knit a blanket 🙂

  • I made my son a Courthouse Steps blanket before he went to college. I feel like my knitting skills have improved since then, so this would be a new blanket for meeeeeee!

  • As a newbie knitter, I’m a log-cabin blanket virgin. I love the pixelated effect of the Ninepatch blanket pattern! I think (and hope) that as I become a more veteran knitter, that these log cabin patterns would be fantastic way to make use of my scrap stash!

  • This log cabin project would be a first for me!

  • Never knit anything larger than small afghan. Love the log cabin effect. Never did a KAL either. New experience may be mine!

  • It’s been on my knitting bucket list for I don’t know how long.

  • I’ve not done log cabin knitting but I’m up for the challenge!

  • Been a while since I’ve knit one of your afghans and with a young adult granddaughter I would like to knit this one for her.

  • I actually started a log cabin based off an old post of Kay’s – I managed probably 6-7 squares and should think about finding those and making a small blanket out of it.

  • I have never done a log cabin blanket! I am sorely tempted!

  • Never made a log cabin blanket. Made many other afghans both knit and crochet. Would love to try

  • As a family project we knit a log cabin blanket for my husband while he went thru chemo. The love of family and the warmth of the blanket made him a survivor.

  • I VEMTURE OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND LEARNED TO KNIT A LOT CABIN BLANKET 3 YEARS AGO WITH A DEAR FRIEND AT A WEEKLY MEET UP AT OUR FAVE SHOP IN BROOKLYN NY!! I WHAT A GREAT TECHNIQUE TO HABE LEARNED. I THINK IT’S TIME TO DIVE IN AND KNIT ONE FOR MY SOON TO BE BORN GRANDSON! WISH ME LUCK!!

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket but they are beautiful!

  • I’m signed up for Snippets! Yes, I have log cabinned 🙂 I knitted the courthouse steps blanket in Rowan Denim from one of the early MDK books, and I’ve made several dish cloths.

  • No, I haven’t yet done any log cabin knitting, but I’ve had several log cabin patterns queued up in my imagination for years. Maybe I should actually make one!

  • I have done mostly small projects, never a blanket. But this would be a beautiful first one.

  • Working on my first log cabin project now…Moderne Baby Blanket. It is a very relaxing knit and I just love it.

  • I’m already signed up for Snippets-do I need tsign up again? I am at work on a Log Cabin blanket already (of sorts) but would love any project involving Ultra Alpaca-one of the most amazing yarns ever!

  • I have never done any log cabin knitting, but my Granny did several log cabin knit blankets in her time! I would love to do one to compare to hers!

  • Most favorite log cabin so far: the rainbow baby blanket I made for a friend. Because it’s DONE. Second favorite: the log cabin blanket I started when pregnant with my daughter. 8 years ago. Which I was knitting on again today. It might become my favorite. If I ever decide it’s DONE.

  • Neat! I’ve kicked the idea around, but I’ve never actually tackled a log cabin project. I’m definitely inspired, though!

  • I have never knit a log cabin but have been very tempted by the Sommerfeld Shawl.
    (I held back because I’m trying to slow the pace of my stash enhancement.)

  • I crotchet and am currently learning how to knit. Would love to receive this kit to make this my first major project.

  • Have been knitting for over 10 years and never tried log cabin one! Would love to give it a go with this lovely prize.

  • How gorgeous! I’m dying to do a log cabin project, but if I won the Giveaway, I’d have to Give It Away, since I’m (sob) allergic to alpaca, and have cats who would snuggle into a knitted blanket – no doubt purring all the while – and happily knead it. Which would make a mess of the knitting, which would make me cry and yell at them, and – well – no doubt better for all of us for me to knit something else.
    No polar bomb here in the Pacific Northwest, just rain. And that’s OK!

  • I have never done log cabin knitting but I would love to try it!

  • I haven’t, but learning log cabin knitting is one of my goals for 2018!!!

  • I’ve never made a log cabin blanket, but I am inspired! I think I should! I wonder if I would ever get it done.

  • No, I have not done log cabin knitting before. Brioche knitting is my challenge of the moment.

  • I knit a Joseph’s Blankie of Many Colors as a baby gift…out of dishcloth cotton. It was colorful and fun, and is still around and in use I understand.

  • I made a single log cabin dishcloth long ago, but all the Logalong excitement was too much for me, so I sat down yesterday and cast on the first square of an Albers Cowl using my vintage Neighborhood Fibers kit. Love it already!

  • I’ve only done the large squares and it was fun! Would love to make a blanket with Berocco Ultra Alpaca. The temp here this morning was 0 degrees F. BRRRRR!!

  • I’ve made several log cabin dishcloths and I have a log cabin blanket going out of Noro started after it showed up in your 1st (?) book from many moons ago. With below zero lows and wind chills here, I think it may be time to dig it out and put another log or so on it. After all it’s gotten big enough for a lap warmer anyway. (And I already am a Snippets reader.)

  • Big fan of MD Knitting and look forward to your weekly newsletters. When you introduced the Field Guides, I jumped on and ordered them. Besides being useful for projects, they make great conversation pieces on my coffee table with my knitter friends. I have the Log Cabin Field Guide and also the Techniques Guide referred to in your collateral. Love it all and a Log Cabin Blanket would be right up my alley to embark on during the season, in MN, called “Winter”. Stay warm and I look forward to trying out the Log Cabin style knitting. Best – mary johnson

  • I’ve never knitted a log cabin anything (that I recall) but I made a quilt top (incorrectly, but it was still pretty), and a pillow with embroidery to outline the seams… both about 20+ years ago. I still use the pillow on the couch, and I gave my mom the quilt (actually a comforter since it’s tied not quilted), which is still on her guest bed.

  • Log cabin is my go to patten for scrap baby blankets!

  • I have never done log cabin knitting before but now that I’ve learned about it, I can’t wait to get started!

  • I knit and Absorba the Great quite a few years ago when I first discovered Mason Dixon Knitting. I’m almost finished with a Moderne Baby Blanket and I need to get moving, the baby in question is three weeks old. And I knit a sweater with Berroco Ultra Alpaca a while back. It’s a lovely yarn a what a pleasure to knit.

  • I have done log cabin knitting before, but it’s been a while. My favorite thing was the Moderne Baby Blanket I made for an expectant friend: https://www.ravelry.com/projects/jeanbees/moderne-baby-blanket

    It was a big hit!

  • I made the original Log cabin blanket from MDK for a nephew’s wedding, so much fun. But my favorite log cabin is doing individual blocks from a spinning monthly fiber club, great way to use up small random fibers, and a colorful blanket at the end!

  • Have never tried log cabin knitting. Have only spent these last frigid days reading about the process & product. Color me fascinated.

  • My brother sent me a fleece from his sheep and I am spinning it (I’m a new spinner) and slooooowly knitting it into a miter square blanket. Do miter squares count as log cabin? But I’m really eager to start a log cabin blanket, so hard to choose colors! Thank you for a chance at a beautiful giveaway!

  • This pattern is on my list to knit.

  • I never done a log cabin knitting before I would live to try. ❤️ Knitting and ❤️ yarn

  • I have never knit a log cabin project but I would LOVE to! Ready to learn new knitting techniques in 2018! Beautiful kit!

  • Very pretty. I have never done one of these, but would love to!

  • I made a couple of log cabin squares for a non-log cabin blanket I am making. They are fun and addictive.

  • I LOVE log cabin knitting. L O V E. Somehow it is mindless yet not boring, althiugh I must admit toward the end of my DK weight Queen size cotton Moderne there were times I wondered if it woukd end.

    I’m often color challenged and so one thing i love about log cabin is the freedom it gives me to experiment. I did that with my first logcabin afghan amd gained a lot of color confidence, althiugh i still have a very long way to go in that department.

    Thanks so for the prize. Congrats to that very lucky winner! I’ve been eying thos pattern for some time…..

  • Log cabin blankets FTW! Couldn’t love them more. Here’s mine – it made the perfect commuter-knitting. Would so <3 one in these colors of Ultra Alpaca! Not afraid of bright colors, but I’m decidedly unimaginative when it comes to color-combining – too locked into Roy G. Biv to make truly exciting choices. /:-\

    • Oops! Link broke – if you want to see it, it’s honeybee33’s Log Cabin Afghan.

  • I have never knitted a log cabin or a nine patch. This would be so fun to try.

  • This would the perfect project for our current cold weather bomb in Atlantic Canada. Brrr

  • I’m teetering on the edge of starting a knitted log cabin throw with my scraps 🙂 like others I’ve made a log cabin quilt block but never a knitted one.

  • I have knit three log cabin blankets. My favorite one was a Moderne Log Cabin Prayer Blanket knit for a church parishioner. I planned the blanket and organized and supervised 72 men, women and children (many of whom could not knit) who helped in the knitting. He was warmed by the love knit into this blanket for the remaining months of his life.

  • It’s been over 15 years since I did any log cabin style knitting. That Sommerfel Shawl is calling my name but my New Year’s resolution was to finish two projects for every one I start. Hoping to get my UFOs into the single digit range.

  • New knitter here and this would be an awesome “big” project to start. Mostly made hats so far.

  • Never made one before, but wanted to! Those colors are gorgeous.

  • I’ve never done log cabin knitting before! I’m a new knitter and this looks like the perfect challenge for my first longer term, larger scale project.

  • Made a couple log cabin blankets but not with such awesome yarn

  • I did a Modern Baby Blanket for the Mason-Dixon knitting book. I thought I would keep knitting on it until I could use it on a queen sized bed. That did not work out so well for me but I do have a nice throw.

  • One of my very first knitting projects was a log cabin blanket that I made for my brother’s 50th birthday. I used Very Pink Knit’s pattern and tutorials. I was just contemplating knitting another blankiet for my sister’s upcoming birthday and was going to search for a different pattern for variety.
    I hope I win your contest!

  • I haven’t made anything in the log cabin style yet, but I’ve been eager to start! I purchased the PDF version of the book the other day and spent about 2 hours in my friend’s coffee shop yesterday studying that book, and the nine patch blanket, and deciding on colors.

  • Looks awesome! Can’t wait to start mine!!

  • I’ve never done a log cabin blanket before, but this looks like a wonderful one to cut my knitting teeth on!

  • I’ve never knit a log cabin project, or a blanket. This could be the one! I’m interested in different construction designs, and modular sweaters and accessories have my attention now.

  • I made a log cabin baby blanket, nearly ten years ago. I’ve been playing with the log cabin generator, and thinking about a two-color blanket… as if I didn’t ’ already have a lengthy queue…

  • I did a log cabin baby blanket for my best friend’s third child. I sort of started out following the Mason Dixon moderne pattern…but at some point I was in a car knitting and didn’t have the book with me when it came time to color change…so I veered. I veered wildly. I just knit logs every which way in whatever color struck my fancy. As someone who breaks out in hives generally when asked to go off itinerary, it was an incredibly freeing experience. Admittedly, I have never gone off pattern since…but out there in the world there is at least ONE blanket that shows I am physically capable of spontaneity.

  • I love to knit but I have yet to do a log cabin blanket! I’ d love to try one.

  • I’m doing log cabin project right now for the FAF log-along and as a matter of fact it’s based on your your Ninepatch Blanket! I’m using Schoppel-Wolle Edition 3.0, which is has long colour repeats, and depending on how many 10″ square 20-stitch ninepatches I can make with my yardage, it will either be a scarf or a cowl (or maybe a ‘scowl’ if I add buttons?) But when your pattern first came out, I totally fell in love and wanted to make a blanket so I really, really want to win this giveaway! And, seriously who doesn’t love Ultra Alpaca?!

    When I saw your posts and field guide 4, I am smitten to transfer my Log Cabin Love to my knitting and knit my first log cabin blanket. Those colors are amazing. [email protected]

  • I got hooked by log cabin via your first book. Made a Joseph’s Blankie of Many Colours which is getting hefty use, particularly by my kids. Did a sunshine and shadow type arrangement of the colours and it still looks just as fresh as when I made it several years back. The MDK log cabin field guide is great, that ninepatch blanket is very tempting…would love to win the kit..keep warm up there (from a Southern Hemisphere correspondent, roasting here in 30+ C dry heat).

  • Never tried a log cabin blanket. Would give it a try, they’re beautiful

  • I havent done log cabin knitting but the yarn colors are so pretty!!! Would love to start!!!

  • Ive never made anything log cabin, but this sure looks like a great way to learn. Love your website!

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  • I’ve never knitted a log cabin project, but sewed a quilt many years ago. Want to start anew blanket project.

  • I started one in acrylic and never finished! I think I ended up giving it away half done. Hopefully someone enjoyed it!

  • I have never made a log cabin blanket, much less heard of it, but it’s beautiful. I would love to learn how to make it. I’ve recently been trying to learn how to know. So far I have the basics down and I really enjoy it. It’s so calming and relaxing. I’ve never heard of Mason Dixon Knitting and I happened to come across your website on accident. However, I am extremely happy I did! I absolutely love the look of the log cabin blanket, and I have to say, you have the most beautifully colored yarn, and it’s made of alpaca AND wool? Seriously? That’s awesome! I live in a small town, and the only place I can get yarn is at the local store. Not much of a selection. I’m somewhat afraid to buy yarn online because you never know what you’re really going to get? To me, the most important thing about yarn is how it feels. Is it soft? Is it going to make me itch? (Things like that) but you can’t feel it via the world wide web. Lol. I’m really hoping I win this give-a-way. I was just laid off of my job right before Christmas, and winning this would put a smile of my face again. It would also give me something to do. I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed.

The colors I chose were wine , off white and a combination color yarn of wine and black. It was done in Briggs and Little worsted yarn. I must of had at least 64 -72 blocks made , just layered in a box. And I had never gotten around to sewing the blocks together after I had started my family. Just kept moving that box with me where ever we moved to . Until finally my daughter ‘s mother-law saw it on one of my moving days about 5 years ago. Well she offered to crochet it together and we would give to the “kids” for a Christmas present. And that is just what we did . It turned out beautiful , if I do say so myself . My daughter tells me it is the go to blanket my grand-daughters grab on chilly evenings in Vancouver , B.C. Canada.

  • I have never done a log cabin knit, but I love the idea! Up until about 6 months ago I did nothing but knit, because I didn’t like pearling. Now, I am trying to expand my abilities and trying new things! A log cabin project is definitely on my to do list!
    I also signed up for the snippets newsletter. Thanks for this lovely giveway.

  • I am a fairly new knitter (re-taught myself a year ago after 50 years of not touching needles) and have never tried a log cabin pattern… yet!

  • This is precisely the kind of weather where I start thinking about a blanket as the next project!

  • Glorious colored yarn! I have not knitted a log cabin blanket . I did , however, make a log cabin quilt the
    Original way, all hand stitching. Thiis was in 1979. Knitting one would be far easier on the finger tips!

  • I’ve not made a log cabin blanket before. I have been wanting to try one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • I’ve knit a couple blankets but not with the log cabin technique. Looking forward to trying one soon.
