Resurrecting Learning Logs Afghan

 These aren't good pictures, as I can't properly lay out the afghan for you to see.  I tossed it down by my foot, and as you can see my broken foot is there as well.
Tried a 2nd time and managed to get my boot a bit further away, and tried to hold down the mint green which is curling in above picture, since it's stockinette stitch.  Quite a few colors here.  Some of you might remember when I started this project last summer.  I named it Learning Logs, as it was a project done through a class (on Crafty's) to learn how to do color work.  Some sections/logs are 2 colors, some are 3.  The pattern for the afghan was to be 6 squares like this (though smaller) and then stitched together.  I thought hooking 6 of these together would be far too busy with all the color and textures together, so decided to use this as a center square and continue with the colors, but in solid sections.

Though I am considering doing some striping as I go.  I've been working on this as I try to elevate my foot as much as possible.  Mentioned in a post a few days ago that I had broken a bone in my right foot.  It's the 5th Metarsal bone.

Have been watching Downton Abbey as I knit.  I never got the opportunity to watch it when it was airing before.  A friend brought over all 6 sessions on CD's to help occupy my time.  I'm really enjoying it, but am in season 5 and already not wanting it to end.  Did you all watch it?  Did you enjoy it?  The period clothes are fun to see.

What's everyone currently working on?

**The counts on our progress bars are current. Percentages are current.  All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. Love the way this afghan is going, all the different colors and patterns. Unique and interesting to look at. I did watch Downton Abbey though not from the start. I saw all the episodes though and really enjoyed it though I'm usually not much for historicals. I am currently working on an afghan for a cousin who was in a serious motorcycle accident and will be in hospital for some time to come.

    1. So sorry Sandie to hear about your cousin. A nice afghan will help lift their spirits, I'm sure. I love historical shows, probably my favorite genre.

  2. You have such an amazing talent for combining colors and textures. This is a great afghan. I'm still working on my second afghan for Bridge & Beyond. While on vacation last week I was able to finish 8 wash clothes. Have to keep the crochet hook busy! Hope your ankle heals quickly.

    1. Thank you Lisa, such a sweet comment, much appreciated. Glad your hook is busy. Thanks for the visit and comments.

  3. Glad to see you have Learning Logs out again. It is much bigger than the last time you posted a picture! Sorry to hear about your cousin. I hope they heal quickly.

    1. Thanks Sue for your visit, always so much appreciated.

  4. Sorry about your foot! Get better soon. Really pretty color combo on the Afghan

    1. Thank you for the visit and comment, both are appreciated. Working at getting better.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
