I started on my Project Linus project yesterday. The Cos Cob Throw pattern by Lion Brand Yarn is really simple and goes quickly as the yarn is doubled and the size 13 needles helps move it along as well. I love the buttery color, I had to laugh when my husband called it yellow. Sometimes I think that poor man only knows primary colors. Due to my distinct dislike for sewing, I opted to make the blanket in one piece. This will make me a happy woman when I bind off.
Aren't those cables so C U S H Y looking? I just might make one of these for my house at some point. Although, I just found a free pattern for spiral knit hand warmers, so those might be next.
