It is a beautiful blanket, I am not sure I can start another project just yet. have joined the yahoo group though and got the pattern. will definitely be on my to do list.
Am I right in thinking you have to follow the original pattern until you hit row 47 and then follow the additional chart of fan and feathers.
Have read a few of the post on the yahoo group and it seems to be a relative quick knit, some people got it done in a month or two which I think is pretty fast.
Will be keeping an eye on this KAL, hope to see lots of pictures.
