My printer is (at this very moment) printing out this pattern! I looked at ALL THE OTHER 43 projects at Ravelry, and I must tell you...yours turned out the nicest! Your st st squares are like all the others, but your textured squares are much nicer...more lumpy and puffy...I think you must have used a better yarn! And your knitting gauge must have been extra nice to make the textured squares turn out so rich! So I'll watch out when I start this blanket! I want my blanket to turn out as like yours did!
Did you see some of the other blankets?
I even like your blanket better than Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's!
