Oh my, what a gorgeous blanket! And I'll bet it is sucking up the yardage like crazy! Cables are notorious yarn hogs!

What a work of love! Great job~

Beautiful blanket in a lovely pattern. I love the XOX's as well as the lovers' knots. Well done!

That's very nice! I'm sure it will be much appreciated.
Did you weigh it? It has to be quite heavy and warm.

it used approx 20 skeins of the lion brand wool-ease chunky, and was rather heavy, i had to try and find the largest gift bag i could to give it to the couple.

What a gorgeous blanket!

Not everyone has Ravelry or can get to it on work days. You might post a picture here, too. :thumbsup:

Abbers, I'm waiting to see a picture. That size you mentioned sounds a bit large. Course, one has to consider the size of the couple.

I generally knit a newlywed's afghan/blanket not quite large enough to fit 2 people comfortably. It's up to them to make any necessary adjustments.

Really would like to see it. Jean

I've tried for several days to upload a picture through the attachment window. It isn't working for me either.
