That is a lot of pattern repeats.

It looks like it might make good TV knitting, though, once you got the hang of where to switch the pattern round. ^_^

That's gorgeous; I think I've got a pair of socks queued that have a similar pattern.

I can't believe you're knitting it on straights. That must be cumbersome. (I'm so used to my interchangeable circulars that I honestly can't remember the last time I used straights for a project! Maybe three or four years ago?)

Gosh, that sounded rude. Not that there's anything wrong with straights, I just never seem to use them any more, even for projects knit flat. I'm just looking at the density of stitches on those needles, and thinking how they must all jump off the moment you're not paying attention.

A circular with a long cable, and you don't really knit any differently than you do with straights. You still turn the work at the end of each row. You just have more room to 'store' the stitches, and you're much less likely to have the situation where you drop a needle and have to pick up a bunch of stitches. You can also wrap the tips into an overhand knot when you're not working, and your stitches are all perfectly secure. It's also much much easier to travel with circulars. It's easier to knit in a moving vehicle with them (which is important, for me, because we live hundreds of miles from anywhere) and you physically can't lose one half of a circular set under a car seat (done that with DPNs, very annoying). I've got some really super long cables for my interchangeable set; if you look at my post on my Aran, the stitches around my middle are all held on my longest cable with the ends capped.

Looking good! And the yarn looks like it must be very soft. :) I like basketweave stitch. I've used it for a square of my sampler blanket, a scarf, and a couple of cushions. So I know that's a lot of knitting there in your pretty blanket! Yay for halfway! :)
