Paintbox Log Cabin Blanket »

Novita Puro yarn, colors "Metsa" (Forest), "Pakkasyo" (Night Freeze), and "Luumupuu" (Plum tree) for the blocks, for borders Manos Del Uruguay Wool.
What was your inspiration?
I'm such a sucker for pretty colors, aren't I? When I saw the Paintbox Log Cabin blanket, I knew exactly which yarn out of my stash was the perfect match for it. Oh, and the name "Stream" really just translates the name of the Novita Yarn.
What are you most proud of?
Honestly? Finding such a fantastic stash reducing project! And it is beautiful, isn't it? Playing with the boxes when trying to come up with the proper arrangement was fun, too. Did you know that it really is not that easy to come up with a random pattern that looks completely random?
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The long borders were a breeze with two sets of KnitPro 100 cm cables. Also, do pay careful attention to being even in your picking up the stitches as you'll be doing a LOT of it.
