Call Me Crazy - Saffron Cables

OK, it is time to commit me. I have seen pictures for this blanket on the net and I have wanted to make it the first time I saw this! It's called "Saffron Cables" and it's in the Fall '06 Interweave Knits. Why have me committed.... because I've only been knitting for about 6 months now and I am *seriously* considering this pattern!

Is that not GORGEOUS! Yes, I definitely see this as a long term project with many -MANY- nice, quick, short projects in between to break up the monotony of such a daunting task. Of course now comes the challenge of finding just the right yarn, because certain wools are very itchy to me. It will have to be something super soft and cuddly. Not to mention that I certainly need to find the perfect color too! Something that would look great for years to come. Anyone for suggestions on yarn??

You are certainly brave! That would be so long term for me that they would probably have to bury me in it with it still on the needles!

I would go for that Aubergine Lambs Pride that we saw today. That's definitely your color!

I loved that blanket when I saw it last fall in the magazine, but I am not brave enough to attempt a full size blanket ... I get bored working baby blankets! Good luck!
