The Knitted Home; Geometric Cable Blanket- not as hard as it looks?

I was absolutely the most thrilled girl in the world to get back from holiday and find the most lovely email (see below) in my inbox....... it's so great to have inspired someone to crack on with their knitting! 
Go Gabrielle!!





Dear Ruth,

You kind advice and geometric throw instructions from your new book inspired me to knit this sample. 
Can't wait to get started on the larger project.

Being a beginning knitter, this was a fun project.  Learned  how to do cables.

Warmest Regards,

Gabrielle
