Orion's Log Cabin
My much younger cousin (whose not really all that young), just had her first baby.
Congratulations to all in her sweet family!
The new little boy has been on my mind in the past few weeks, as I've completely relished knitting a happy little log cabin square for him. It was originally intended to be a blanket (a la mason dixon), but the short rows I used to make the pieces non-square (i.e. charming) have had the added effect of causing the little square to pop out convexly and rather, well, pillow-like.
This happy little accident, combined with the fact that baby Orion came 3 weeks early have sealed the fate of this little square, as a 20" pillow, instead of a much larger blanket.
I will sew a pillowcase from some fun fabric, tack the log cabin square to it, and then embroider his name somewhere.
Thanks for talking me through all this, Heather. As always, you give my knitting crises your full, therapist-quality attention. I hope to always do the same for you!
Tomorrow I'm off to Philly. gulp.
In my fantasies, I'm relaxed (peaceful even) and savoring every moment. In my nightmares, I'm worrying about my children and aimless without their constant company.
I feel excited tonight, and that is a good sign.
Happy Valentines day!
