I finally finished the Cable Monster! No, that's not the real name. This is a cabled baby blanket that I made for my sister and brother-in-law, who are expecting their first child in August. I always wanted to make them an Irish Cabled something....and I chose a blanket because kids grow out of sweaters. This took about three months to make and was tedious at times, but worth it.
When Brian was on deployment to Italy, he saw a beautiful cabled white sweater in a shop. Unfortunately the shop was closed and he's sad to this day that he didn't buy the sweater. He's asked me to make it for him and I want to....someday. Let's just say that this blanket was "good practice."
