The design is orginal and I've combined cables and lace work for the first time. The edges are knit with cables that give the image of tree trunks and branches complete with dangling leaves. Through the center is a Celtic Knot pattern, which is the path for your stroll.
I used over 2,400 yards of worsted weight yarn and it got pretty heavy while working it near the end, but I kept snuggly and warm! I knit with 2 strands of slightly different shades of yarn that give just a hint of highlights through out the afghan.
One of my luck children will get this for Christmas this year... now which one has been really, really good?
