Why don't you knit up a swatch and wash it and maybe even dry it and see how it handles it.
I could do up a swatch and wash it and dry it ... a good idea ... if it shrank it wouldn't be so bad because the blanket seems like it's going to be very big .. 123 st on size 9mm needles .. or I could knit up the blanket and wash it and dry it and see how it came out .. if it was too small I wouldn't send it ... at least it would be practise if nothing else (considering I haven't finished a THING yet!!)
Jan, that is the same page I went to to find out what I could do with it ..
