It looks so cozy and wonderful! What a great throw this would be for a bedroom or living room. And I think it'd be cute to do it in something that refers to their wedding colors. It calls for big needles and knitting double, so it'd be a quick knit.
The yarn it calls for is wonderful (Cascade Magnum) and all the supplies total of about $160-180. So it's a pricey blanket, but I feel like something homemade could be more meaningful than a check. And... I can knit, so I sometimes feel like for all these events it'd be great if I could my powers for good. And I know from experience that when I made my friend Jaime a baby blanket for her baby shower, she really appreciated it and it gets a lot of good use.
But is it cheesy to make a blanket for someone? Do people getting married just want money or something more practical like wine glasses?
