Wedding Project #2

It must be wedding season. I’ve been working on another wedding gift for another pair of madly-in-love-with-each-other friends, I’ll call them Gwam. Right before I left for a two week road trip (photos are coming in another post), I realized in a panic that I didn’t have a project to take with me. Two weeks of driving and nothing to keep my hands busy? Not a chance.

I wavered between Mason Dixon’s Moderne Log Cabin and Debbie Stoller’s Long and Winding Throw.

Hard choice, right? I was advised that the log cabin would be a more guy friendly, and even though, as previously mentioned, I love using intertwining cables for weddings to represent the lives coming together. In the end, it was much easier to knit endless rows of garter stitch, as I could drop my knitting to take pictures, look at the map, get snacks from the cooler, etc, and always continue my knitting without ever counting stitches or checking the pattern.

Here’s what it looked like the day before we left:

Lion Brand's Fisherman's Wool in Nature's Brown, Oatmeal, Natural and Brown Heather

And here’s how it looks today:

It's 3.5 planks tall!

Gwam’s measurements: 20″ x 27″

Goal: approximately 50″ x 60″

This is going to be my mental break from the more intricate chuppah, when the cables, leaves and grafting get to be too much.
