Direct from Friday night...

Friday Night Blues

It's Saturday Sky!

We went to the "performance" and opening of the INSTANT ART SHOW at Main Street Art Works last night.  I loved the concept from the get-go -- each of the co-op's artists invited three or four other artists to bring their favorite work, find a place to install or hang it, then party "enjoy each other's company."  Yeah, it was well attended and really fun -- and (yay) even profitable for some.  I took a break from the fun, and took my camera on a walk around the block.

Before I get kicked out of the knitting club, here's a fairly craptacular progress photo of the Log Cabin blanket as of... the other night (I don't remember which night).  I'm about at the point where I can decide whether I want to keep log cabin-ing all the way to the end, or do something different.  I'm leaning toward doing something different... like picking up and knitting a rainbow of squares all around the edge.  It's kind of a wild & crazy blanket, anyway; I think it could work.

Like the idea for the art show.
And I'll be interested to see what you do with the blanket.
(Our sky is all rain, all weekend)

Great sky/weather photos. Your blanket is looking wonderful!

What an amazing sky--beautiful!

Love the sky! We're sending you clear blue and sun!!

I like the squares for edging idea. Maybe even some squares of squares or rows of small squares - depending on how tired you are of doing small sections.

That cloud effect is lovely. Our sky is just rain so far today. I'm sure I have some older photos to plug in, though.

I like the squares on the edge idea. Maybe squares of squares or rows of little squares, unless you're tired of knitting the little pieces.

The clouds are lovely. Our sky is just rain right now. I may have to pull out some older photos to post.

Cool clouds and sky!

whoa - what a great sky photo! love it.
I also really like your idea of knitting around the log cabin square - a kind of crazy-quilt-knit blanket? I bet it'll be well loved and used often.

I think it would work, too....go for it!!

Oh it could definitely work. I d love to see something different anyhow done with a log cabin base.

WOW! that is some beautiful Sky!

Beautiful and dramatic sky photo! I love the log cabin blanket; the yarn is so totally perfect for the pattern...very very nice!
