Log Cabin - the Cheapass Version

Y'all know by now of my love for the Log Cabin Blankets. So what's a girl to do when she finds some yarn that'd make a super Log Cabin in shades of black and grey?
Why, wait for it to go on sale, of course :0)
I snagged 5 balls of this yarn on sale for a dollar a piece. I got two squares out of the first ball - less the final cast-off row that is. Time will tell how that works out.
Each square is only just smaller than the Noro squares I'm making.
I also snagged some other black/grey Debbie Mumm yarn that will be made into squares to flesh out the blanket. And I'll be on the lookout for some knock-down priced black or grey yarn for the border.
I have no idea who this will be for, but I'm sure I'll think of someone :0)
Happy Tuesday :0)

Gorgeous! Love the black and gray! I need to pull out my log cabin now that the socks and sweaters are done!

I always thought that Debbie Mumm yarn looked like Noro-Nockoff! Great score!
