The boring green blanket is done!

lap blanket
I haven't measured it yet, but I think it's about 3 1/2 feet by 4 feet.

Pattern: Cable Blanket (that link should make in possible for anyone to see my Rav page for this project. The Bernat website makes you register even to look at free patterns.)

Yarn: 10 skeins of KnitPicks Swish Bulky in Honeydew, which had been languishing in my stash

Needles: Giant size 10 circs

Mods: I only cast on 206 stitches rather than 230, and pretty much knit until I was out of yarn. That happened half way through the bind-off. I tried weaving in ends and using the trimmings (some of those ends were pretty long), but even then, I didn't have enough to finish. So I ended up picking out the bind-off and tinking one row, then binding off.

This is charity knitting for WRAP, and I finished it a whole 13 days early!

And now there is stealth knitting....
