As I am knitting this I am thinking
about how to change the pattern so that I don't have the same problem if I ever do this again. I do like the pattern. It is easy to knit and works up quickly. I have been able to do the bigger "logs" at a rate of 1 a day. The beginning square and "logs" took a lot less time. I think I was able to do the first 5 pieces in a couple of days.
I have 3 more to go and I am sure I will be finished by June 4th when my grandson visits. He loves "Legos". I am hoping he thinks it looks like Legos. All that said, I am now going to change the title. It started as "it is all going wonky" to grab attention and because it was. Then, Shandeh changed it to Log Cabin-Help! so knitters who have done this type of blanket could help. Well, no matter what, I am going to finish it as it is and hope that the pocket over the beginning square will straighten things out. So, I am changing the title to Log Cabin
(the pattern) or Lego Land
(which is going to be for me). I will post the finished project.
