OK. Let me give you something for scale. The dog on the left weighs 65 pounds, the one of the right, 93. (turns out it's really hard to get two boxers to look at you at the same time).
See! It's a freaking BLANKET! I think it's bigger than my Hemlock. The good news is I still love it, and what that means for me is that my knitting has slowed down considerably as a reach the end. But I'm going to block it tonight, as although I love knitting this - I'd really rather get to WEAR it.
