A daily challenge is as necessary and as practical a thing as a daily vitamin. Both give us health, both give us strength. Two days ago I knit 3 improvisational log cabin swatches (my goal is to knit a swatch a day in 2007). Perhaps due to my quilting roots I had an intense desire to combine these 3 wonky squares into a vertical strip. Now joined, I'm challenged to add a border along the vertical edges. I know it's possible given a few short rows here and there. Here's to my daily challenge!
We have GOT to talk about those short rows. LOVE IT!

I would like to be able to make squares like that. Those squares are great.

I like the red you used to bridge the swatches -- it really plays well with the others.

I like the concept ~ you can go anywhere with this, cushions, covers, wall hangings etc. A work of art.

The square is cute and the colour is at good match.

Sounds like a good way to combine colours. I like it.

Those are fun log cabin swatches. They remind me of art quilts. I'll bet you had fun knitting them.
