Sometimes it just doesnt feel like you're making any progress and then you look down and see wow! I did more than I thought I did. This is called the Cabled Comfort Throw. It was supposed to be done on size 13 needles with chunky yarn You're supposed to make five panels and sew them togeter. I have modified the pattern to use a size 7 needle, I'm doing 10 panels all at once to avoid the seeming. I am also using Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Berry to make this blanket. So far I have used three skeins. I will probably end up using about seven or eight skeins to make a good sized lap blanket.
