The Forever Log Cabin

Section 6.  Finally section 6 of the Moderne Log Cabin is under way.  I admit that the desert heat has severely limited the minutes - much less hours - that I want to sit under a lap full of wool and produce even more intertwined wool loops.  Please don't misunderstand.  The schematic is wonderful.  The end result will be practical, filled with nontraditional color transitions and big enough to ward off winter evening chill for a person or two.  

That little line marked by the arrow is the beginning of the sixth section.  You'll note that this part of the eternal garter stitching is made of Plymouth Yarns Boku and it is color 4.  Not very exciting.  Color 4.  Section 6.  I thought of naming this post "4 X 6" but that just seemed way to outrageous for something so mundane as an unfinished blanket.

The particulars on Boku
Yarn Content: 95% Wool, 5% Silk
Yarn Gauge: 4 sts=1"/US 7 needle
Yarn Length: 99 yds/50g ball

This is the third color of Boku spread around ye basic olive & wheat shades.  
Right now, in the too hot to knit huge wool projects time of the year, I dream of a chill in the air, custom socks tucked into the edge of this blanket and a new project to cast on in the glow of a warm fire.  Given that I'm working wool in the desert heat of August, I'll probably be making a linen tank top by the glow of that fire.
