I'm just about halfway through with the cabled afghan, at least based upon the amount of yarn I dyed for this project. The lighting did some funny things — there are no horizontal stripes, that must be from the bad nighttime living room light.
This project has been too bulky to be portable for quite some time now, which puts it on a slower track for completion than I would like. It is already incredibly perfect for snuggling under on the couch while watching TV. But, given that I can only work on it at home, I'm hoping to work on it a couple of nights a week and finish up by the end of February. At this point, I've crossed the cables seven times (it's a 14 row repeat). I'm hoping to be able to get in at least another seven to insure the finished afghan is long enough to cover toes.
