Finally finshed my blankie!
I'm so happy

I've been working on it since the beginning of October and I reached my goal of completing it by thanksgiving.

I got some pictures too



I threw a CD in there for size.



This is a close up of the stitches. I'm donating it to foster children and it's really warm I got to test it out before I give it away. AnyhowI'm happy and it's time to get back to knitting some more stuff

Pretty. Did you use seed stitch between the cables?

Yes I did use a seed stitch between. I ribbed it in two places but it's so hard to see no one would really know.
