Log Cabin Baby Blanket, Part Deux

In a fit of organizing that hit me earlier this summer, I unearthed this baby blanket that I had started while on maternity leave last year. I love to re-watch my favorite movies and TV series while I craft, and if I recall correctly, this got me through quite a few episodes of Sex and the City. But at some point I put it down, probably to advance on the granny square blanket, and it had been buried in a closet ever since.

I had originally planned to knit a much larger blanket but instead opted for a small version that I could use to cover Bon Bon while in her stroller (and that wouldn't fall over the sides and get trampled under the stroller's wheels). The blanket is perfect for this, and I'm happy to say it's gotten quite a bit of use as Paris has been unseasonably cool this summer.

The idea to do a log cabin blanket came from this project on the Purl Bee blog. I normally go for a more muted palette in my yarn projects, and it was a nice change to get to play with colors like lime green and turquoise. Kind of makes me want to embark on a new crocheted blanket à la Jane Brocket or Lucy at Attic24...
