I am going to try this blanket on size 35 needles and first I am going to make a small rug to check the weight, texture, and gauge. I have too much yarn and a lot of projects mainly in my head. :)

Good morning. I have debated for weeks about sending a comment on this project so here goes. 10 hours?????? devoted to which part--gathering your left overs and creating a color scheme, joining the 8 strands and winding(don't just place each color in a container or you will have a major mess if you are using different yarns--they stretch,tangle-,one LARGE Ball at a time worked best for me. You still have to keep the tangles out. i knitted my blanket in 20 row increments and then changed to a new LARGE BALL. I have 5 20 row blocks in each half. It is gorgeous or will be when I finish sewing the two halves together. It is very heavy to handle but will be WARM enough for the ARTIC. I am considering a spot for it to be seen but probably not used often due to its weight and the fact my winters or spent in Florida. Over all it was fun, frustrating, challenging, and will be nice to look at when I finish sewing it together. Thanks for the opportunity. Wanita Thomas.

Thank you for the russian join link, printed and ready to use! :) That was always a problem with big knited blankets, thankfully not anymore! I also love this blanket and hoping my hands can take it because I am the queen of stash yarns, husband now knows not to say a word when I come it with yet more yarn...was a problem in the beginning but he realized that is my love like his now I have a replacement to keep me very busy now that my one and only is away at college and then off to the USAF, so I had to find something to keep me occupied! LOL He even took me out last night to buy that is LOVE! ;) Once I get the kneedles will definately give this one a try! Thanks! Hubby will be happy too! LOL
