I have worked a good bit the past week on the log cabin blanket. You can see the different dye lot colours really clearly in this picture - even better than in real life! They definitely need to be mixed up a bit. I love the overall effect though - the texture and the colours too.
I have worked a little bit on Clapotis too. I dropped the third stitch. I can see already that it will need a really good blocking to straighten it out and pretty it up too.
