Boy, it’s a big month filled with lunacy over here in Camp Blue Moon… Blood Moons, Blue Moons, new colorways and all sorts of lunar madness!
The other week I was inspired by the #fringeandfriendslogalong and started a blanket for our little room up in the mountains:
But now Tina’s all on fire with new moon-y colorways, and we got to thinkin’… wouldn’t these progressive lunar phase colorways just make the most GORGEOUS Log Cabin blankets?
The Fringe Association Log-Cabin-along is a gently-organized free-for-all of Log Cabining: do you want to make a blanket? a coat? a pair of handwarmers? Yarn, colors, and scale of knitting is up to you: folks out there are doing all sorts of great stuff and tagging it with the #fringeandfriendslogalong hashtag. Post pictures of your progress on Instagram or Facebook or Ravelry… wherever your social media happy place(s) is/are!
Personally, I can’t wait to hang out down at BlueMoonLand this weekend and cast on a Lunar Madness blanket with these beauties. I’d start with the boldest, reddest color for the center square and then work out to grey from there. There are 4 colorways pictured above, so I might throw in a fifth so that my Log Cabin strips don’t stack up with one color on each side… or I might work from reddest to greyest and then back out again. So many possibilities!
Go check out the Fringe Association blog for all the details and then just see if you can resist the urge to cast on for your own moony project.…
Phases of the Moon blankets, here we come!
