Finished Object Friday - Cables and Blankets

So I have had this object done since the end of April but really haven't had a chance to blog about it or the resultant blanket I finished so now that I have some time I can share it with you.

My first project with cables

I had a desire to try cables to see how hard they were.  I started working on the Cables and Lace Afghan Square 8 in a cotton yarn but really hate knitting with cotton so I switched to some acrylic I had in my stash.  After finishing the square itself, I started to widened it so that it could be 12"x12" and fit in with the squares I received from a swap in which I participated.

Square project details can be found here:

Needles - US 7/4.5 mm
Hook - F/5 mm
Yarn Vanna's Choice Yarn - Lime, Lamb, Eggplant, and Kelly
Duration - About 3 Weeks
