Aran cable blanket
It will be a long time before I do cables again. Whew! My daughter saw this pattern, Bernat Aran Cable Blanket and wanted it really bad. It is 50" x 55" and got pretty heavy after a while. She loves it which makes my hands and shoulders feel a little better
I hope I have done this right.

cable closeup
Thanks! This picture shows the cables a little better. It washed up beautifully! Just before I finished this we were told we are going to be grandparents! Of course I wanted to hurry and finish this and get started on something for my first grandchild. I did tell her, that one will not have cables!
