Keepin' warm

I never did show you pictures of my Noro Log Cabin blanket, did I. Well, excuse my self-indulgence, as I post a few pics.... I LOVE this blanket. The boys LOVE this blanket. They call it "Mommy's colourful blanket". It has pride of place on the back of the sofa, so I can see it when I'm in the kitchen :0)
I love it almost like my child. Only this thing took longer to gestate.

It's super warm and perfect for napping under.
Yarn - Noro Kureyon for the squares. Cascade Eco-wool for the border.
6 rows of 5 squares, or 5 rows of 6 for a total of 30 squares.
One ball of kureyon for each square. I think I made 3 full squares with the leftovers, so this blanket has 27 different balls of Kureyon. I only have 23 listed on my Ravelry project page, but that means little.
Finished Measurement: 67" x 60" roughly.
Pattern: I totally copied KathyMarie's instructions from her blogpost here.
I heartily recommend this project. Making the squares is like eating peanut M&M's - just one more.....
I have to admit to one thing I'd do differently. If you can't guess already. I wouldn't have included the 'natural' coloured kureyon skein. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm looking at it as an artistic statement ;0)

Love it!! It almost looks Amish influenced--in which case the natural square is perfect since they always include a "mistake" in their quilts.

It is gorgeous and I'm totally copying it. I've had kureyon set aside for Lizard ridge, but this combines my quilting side along with my knitting side. Thanks for the link :)
