Christmas and Log Cabins

19 Jul

Wouldn’t it be nice to be tucked away in a cozy log cabin somewhere in the snow-covered mountains, with a crackling fire, a mug of hot chocolate, and a cozy blanket? Yeah, instead it’s July, which feels like being in a fire or a hot beverage or under a heavy blanket every time I step outside. So making this knit Log Cabin blanket last month definitely wasn’t fun as far as the temperature goes, but fun as far as the knitting goes.

Pattern: Mason Dixon How To Log Cabin
Yarn: Red Heart Holiday
in colors Antique Red, Green, and Multi
Red Heart Super Saver in creme
Needles: US Size 10
Finished Size: Approx. 58 inches square

This was a belated birthday present for a friend who loves Christmas, red and green, year-round. Although getting a gift of a blanket in June is not on everyone’s wishlist, I know she will appreciate this cozy lap blanket once the temps do finally cool off.

Why is it I always seem to spend the hottest months making afghans?
