  • Log Cabin-ing

    There is hardly a pioneer's hut which does not contain a few odd volumes of Shakespeare. I remember reading the feudal drama of Henry V for the first time in a log cabin.
    -Alexis de Tocqueville

    I've got not one but two pairs of finished Log Cabin socks for the Christmas basket. Log Cabin Socks
    Pattern: from Handknit Holidays
    Yarn: Tahki Dakota for the grey, and worsted weight wool from McAusland's Woolen Mill on PEI for the green/blue pair
    Needles: US6 dpns for the grey, US5 for the green/blue
    Notes: Great, easy pattern. Makes thick slipper socks, nothing that would fit in shoes.
    Best Thing About This Project: And that about concludes my Christmas knitting.

    Any updates from the peanut gallery?

    I'm very jealous of your nearly finished xmas knitting! I've had yarn for that pattern for nearly two years now - and it's cold here now. As soon as the xmas knitting is finished, hubbo and I are each getting a pair.

    Man! You knit wicked fast! I wish I could finish as quickly as you do. I am almost finished with your socks! YEY! :0)

    There's nothing better than a thick pair of socks for wearing around the house. Nice pattern!

    Love the pattern and the colors. Isn't that the greatest book?
