Knit As Quilt?

Straight from Interweave Knits (IK) Spring 2005 issue: the Bear Claw Blanket, with modifications.
Okay, I changed the color and I changed the gauge, and it will be 4 motifs rather than 9, but other than that, it's the same blankie!
Except that it will be entered as a lap robe.
Instead of Koigu, I am using sock yarn. Instead of size 3s, I'm using 9s. And I've double stranded. But other than that. . .
I have completed the thumb gusset on the 1st Lopi mittn, and I'm past the halfway point on the Heart Blankie. But I still need to sew the buttons on the EZ February sweater so that I can declare it finished. What does that give me? Two entries finished?


Now, that's an interesting pattern; looks like a challenge, if nothing else. Great ideas for adapting it, though; how big will your final lap robe be?
I love that pattern but haven't braved it yet. I'm looking forward to seeing yours.
