Log Cabin Knitting
About a week ago, this book showed up in the library with my name on it. I'd apparently put a request in for it some months ago, but I couldn't remember why. I took it home, and only recently got a chance to sit down and look through it.
I had a great time reading these goofy women's take on knitting and seeing their terrific fun projects. And then I found a page that made me say "Ah ha! So THIS is why I wanted to see this book!"
There's a whole section on Log Cabin Knitting. They show how to knit log cabin squares the way you piece them, starting in the center and adding strip by strip around each side. You can make squares and join them, or just keep going and going for one large log cabin throw.
What a great idea, huh? And another use for all those yarn left overs, too.
