Very, very nice.  It looks....darn I hate it when I can't come up with the words I want to use...does "smooth" work as the word?  I don't know if you can understand what I'm trying to say...maybe I should have just stuck with "very, very nice."  {#confused.gif}

The yarn does have a sheen to it and is silky smooth.  The photo really doesn't do it justice.

Is there 9 sts missing from the end of rows 9 and 13?  All the other rows add up to 43 sts (without the repeats) and these two only add up to 34...9 sts less than the others.  ~Tricia

I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  My mother-in-law passed away recently.  You are right about the number of stitches and yet I knit a blanket after writing up this pattern and had no problem with it.  I will be looking into this.  Thank you.

I'm very sorry about your mother in law.

was there a correction for row 9 and 13 as requested in May? 

Thank you

I started knitting the blamket again and can find nothing wrong with rows 9 or 13.

I am on Row 9 and was figuring out where to get the last sl1, k1, psso; the stiches ended up only till k9 which will balance the beginning of Row 9. Tricia is right. Please advise - thanks...Rose

yes I am having the same problem as Rose, I would like to no what everyone else did I do not to quit making this blanket....Gayle

I am a nut for symmetry and had the same problem as a lot of you.  I got out some draft paper and laid out the whole pattern.  To make rows 9 and 13 come out I discovered that you only repeat the pattern 8 times instead of 9.  At the end I did a yo, k9, yo, s1, k1, psso, k9 for the last 9 stitches.  It came out perfect!  I was surprised it worked as I'm not a very seasoned knitter and had never done anything like this before.  Good luck!

Thank you so much.  Obviously I need to find someone to proof knit my patterns for me.

so is the top border much smaller than the bottom? the bottom border is a set of 4 rows, 14 times (56 rows) but the top should only be 4? the photo looks like the top and bottom borders are equal so i'm confused

The top border has the same number of rows as the bottom border.

thank you!

is there an error on line 11?  As written it comes out to 151 stitches instead of 139 stitches.

Row 11 has now been corrected.
