Cables look a little crooked to me. I'm going to email her about frogging it.

Oh that's just evil!

That's a really, really cool blanket!

Talk about a toe-breaker! That blanket makes my toes hurt just looking at it. I've heard of really hefty quilts (some made by my family members) that were too heavy to really be of use. This blanket looks like it definitely fits that category (unless you're in to doing toe exercises every night).

Crazy!

I think I would use it just as a bedspread.

Ah, here's the story behind the blanket. I wish blogs had an index other than dates:

I wonder if it's less heavy though because it's made from unspun wool roving.

What fun! but my arms wouldn't survive the knitting journey. Looks good and soft though, and the cats sure love it.
