Sorry. I don't have a chart for Mickey. I freehanded him. It took me quite a few tries to get them "right". But it turned out alright.

I wanted to bump this thread and find out if anyone has made this yet. I think the design is great but I'd love to see how it looks on someone in real life before trying it for someone I know. Cheesy

So hows it going on the aran, folks?

for what the pattern called for, it took just over one skien per column. Overall it used 8 skeins, which is one less than the pattern called for. If I were to make a large afghan, which I one day might, I would knit each column for two skeins. and add  more columns. It is oh so cozy.

I mentioned I was making a Hermione hat for my mom. I have removed the zig-zag and bobbles and added Mickey Mouses. My mom does like Mickey. Anyway, here it is, the finished hat for my mom.

Disclaimer: Yes, it has Mickey on it. My mom likes Mickey. But you can ignore that and check out the cabling and knitting. It is a fine hat though.

Looking good. Really good job with the altercations. I like your choice of color. I too love the Vanna's Choice. She has some awesome colors. And it knits well. Good job on the sweater. Green is a good color for you.

Is it heavy as all hell?
It's pretty heavy. You can definitely feel the weight of it on you when you use it. If I ever knit it again, I will do so for me. Smiley and make it a few more columns wider, and a few more cables taller. Oh yeah!


I love it! I have been wanting to make that same afghan. I am not sure about the woolease though.  I am not too fond of the Woolease worsted. Is the Thick & Quick a bit better? Thanks.
The thick & quick is nice. It is easy to work with. And fluffy and comfy. It feels really nice. I really like the way it came out. It feels just like it looks. Thick, heavy, comfy, warm, and squishy. It works great for this afghan. I'm not sure that the worsted would work for this.

I've been dying to make that hat and the matching mittens. How hard was it? I just finished the house scarf and beanie in Gryffindor colors.

It was a bit hard. But that is mostly because when I started it, I didn't know what cabling or bobbles were. lol. I do now. I am currently doing the hat over for a gift for my mom. Only without the bobbles or zig zag and after 3 days of relaxed knitting. I am done. So really the hardest part is keeping track of what line your are knitting. It's not all that bad. I want to knit the matching gloves some time. But I have a few more projects under my sleeve first.

i saw this a couple of weeks ago at michael's and picked up the yarn in brown, to go with our living room colors, although it was the green that attracted me.  i hope when i'm finished it looks as good as yours.

Oooh. I do hope you enjoy doing yours as much as I did doing mine. I should like to see how yours turns out in the brown. I thought about doing a brown color.

ooooooooooooo pretty. And manly too. Smiley  I want some of thoses LionBrand patterns but I'm wary of stuff that asks for SO much info to get free stuff. Have you had any issues with junk mail or anything from it? I LOVE THIS SO SO SO MUCH. I was just looking up how to do fat cables. I didn't find anything, then I log on here and BAM! I just started an afghan for my son and now I wish I would've seen this first. Ok.. now I'm rambling. It's so great.

I haven't had any problems with spam or junk mail or anything like that from them. I did sign up to receive their catalog and it is nice. They have lots of patterns in the catalog, some of which are free. So that is always a plus.

I've been to that knitting store. It was great. They had a very good selection. And yeah. I got the pattern from Charmed Knits. That book has so many great patterns in it. I was thinking about making the matching mittens. But I have some holiday gifts I need to knit first.
