We took a poll and we’d all rather be back in bed with the covers over our heads this Monday. So I give you one of my favorite knits: a blanket that I made in honor of our wedding that’s on our bed every night!
The Pattern: Paintbox Log Cabin Blanket by Katherine Keyes
The Yarn: Noro Kureyon in 19 different colors (the 20th blanket square is bits and bobs of all the other colors!)

What a Goldilocks blanket: it’s just right. It’s not at all garish, but it is welcoming and cheery and homey and full of love. It is exactly the kind of blanket I would love to have on my bed, too. And, as always, your ink pairings are uncannily spot on.
And right now, almost every day feels like a case of the Mondays to me. This post did indeed brighten my day.
I’m so glad! I hope your Tuesday is a bit better. The world is a bit dark these days, but surrounding ourselves with color is the way to go!
What a lovely blanket! It uses the color changes in the yarn to great benefit, which avoids a lot of ends to weave in.
Yes! Noro was one of the original color changing yarns and the log cabin does allow you to avoid any ends but the first and last!
I love the different colors in the squares. It is so pretty.
Thanks Lori! <3
Beautiful blanket! Thanks for sharing it!
