This is my first afghan, and my 3rd project using cables. Don't be scaredof cables! They're not so bad! I used a pattern called "Cushy Cables" by Patons which I found on Ravelry. It took the better part of 3 1-pound skeins of Caron in color Ocean. Overall size is about 4' x 5'.

I gave it to Mom for Christmas.  Grin

Thanks! Yes, it's knitted in one piece. It was fine in the fall to knit with it on my lap, but I wouldn't want to try it in summer.

Lovely!  Your Mom must be thrilled.  Thanks for the encouragement re: cables.  I learned to knit this year but too chicken to try cables.  It's on the list for next year.
