first log cabin square

So here's the first square.  I'm using Caron Simply Soft (no dye lot) yarn in the following colors:
Dark Side: Royal (I Love This Yarn instead of Simply Soft), Autumn Red, Dark Sage, Violet
Light Side: Orchid, Soft Green, Soft Pink, Soft Blue
Center Square: Black

It took me about two weeks of working about 30 minutes a day while waiting for rehearsal to start to complete the square, which ended up being 14 inches by 14 inches.  It was a little bigger than I expected it to be, but that just means the blanket will be larger than expected, or I can make fewer squares.  Either way, it's going to turn out really cool!  I'll cast on the second square sometime this weekend.  For the rest of today, I'm concentrating on lines!
