WOW! That's one ambitious project.

I could see me finishing something like that in time for their 10th anniversary.

Looking forward to seeing pictures as you progress.

well their wedding colors were pink and green so I'm doing it in white, pink(fushcia), purple, maybe the green not sure yet...i initially was going to do a different one so bought only 3 colors and being that pink is her favorite color and her husband is ok with it..i'm thinking of keeping it mainly pink

Oh this is a winner of an afghan! Very tempted to start yet another blanket!!! The blanket featured on the Ravelry page is wonderful work! Not sure if any of those are yours or not.

I've been looking for something like this!
My grandson *just* asked me to make him a checkerboard blanket in red & blue in time for Christmas. I really need a pattern JUST LIKE THIS!

so I'm thinking of adding a 4th color just so I don't have the fuschia and purple next to each other...at first I was thinking of getting the black...but now I think I'm gonna go with a dark grey...I'm using Lion Brand wool-ease

oooh! I think gray and pink (or fuchsia, or lavender) is a very elegant, sophisticated color scheme - throw in some teal!

Wow, that is amazing. It's beautiful.
I watched a video on entrelac and it scared the needles out of my hand.
Cute doggy too. He looks silky soft.
