if i start knitting a blanket,

will i finish it?

look at these gee's bend quilt sections:



would it not be so fun to interpret one of those in knitting? how would it look felted?

this is not a new idea, being inspired by quilts, but i am enjoying thinking about doing things like using short rows to emulate the uneven blocks of fabric, using noro to generate uneven sorts of stripes... wow. fun to ponder...

ooh-I'm a huge fan of log-cabin quilting/knitting! I have a log cabin quilt that I made in high school-I love it. Go for it!
