TV Lapghan Reviewed by Jessica Davis on 2008-06-04 *****
I personly love vanna's choice yarn colors. The yarn is very soft and easy to work with. I like how the lapghan came out. It reminds me of fall. I made the blanket for my grandmother for mother's day. She absolutly loves it. She says it keeps her very warm and comfortable. It didn't take that long for me to make the blanket as I expected. I would say that it took between 5-10 hours to make. I will definitely be making more blankets with vanna's choice yarn again in the future.

What great suggestions in the above comment, thanks for sharing! Im just adding fringe to a finished crochet throw today (sedge stitch throughout, looks amazing!) and this is a handy tip to help me complete my project. Also washing tip was great.

TV Lapghan Reviewed by Abbie McMillen on 2008-01-24 *****
I love making quick afghans of this size, using multiple soft yarns! All the afghans I have made so far are knitted. I have used Lion homespun together with Lion Moonlight mohair and other Lion yarns, and the afghans turn out great! This one will, too, I can tell already. Couple of tips: buy an extra ball of each yarn and lay out the fringe FIRST. The way I do this is to wrap about 80 - 90 complete wraps of the mixed threads around a long piece of heavy cardboard about 12 inches by 45 inches in size, and leave the wrapped cardboard in a convenient location so it's ready when the afghan is done. Just cut the fringe along one edge when you are ready to apply it. I like afghans that look equally good on both sides so I can't WAIT to try this pattern! I already have the yarn! The ones I knit are done back and forth on a very large (17mm) circular needle as follows: Cast on 64 sts. Rows 1 - 4, knit (garter stitch.) Rows 5 - 8, knit 4, purl 4 across (I find the edge is neater when I slip the first stitch of each row.) Repeat these two stitch groups until piece is as long as you want. Washing is easy in a large zippered bag, or just use the washing machine as a "soaker and spinner" without agitation.
