My two-year old has appropriated this as her blankie. She has pretty high standards for what she'll cuddle up with so I think I did something right. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be comfortable with cables; the pattern isn't all that complicated but there are a LOT of cables. And you'll want a long cable needle as you'll end up with a lot of stitches.
