Daily Challenge

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!

Today's Challenge: Add borders along the vertical edges.

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.

Simply to follow up on this subject on the date on your site, really do not want to let you know how much I value your help to create this post. In the post, you talked about how to really deal with this issue with all ease.
