I FINALLY DID IT!!!!!! I FINISHED MY FRIEND'S THROW!!!!!!:woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:
I have been working on this thing for over a year. I stayed up last night until after midnight BO and blocking but it's done. It's not as long as I'd like it to be but I barely had enough yarn to finish it and I finished just in time because Smokie's B-Day is next Saturday and it's going to be a very hot week and I'm not going to feel like working on a throw in 100+ degree heat. I have to finish my 1st sweater when the weather cools off.

I used 7 skeins of LB WE in Forest Green Heather on size 8s. The pattern is an adaptation of Brooke Nelson's Column of Leaves scarf.

It's beautiful!! :balloons:

I know how you feel about the heat ... it was 92 yesterday and is supposed to be 98 today, so I'm finding it very hard to finish knitting my HP scarf because it's so :hot:!

:muah: :muah: Thanks everyone :muah: :muah:

It's not as large as it looks I think it's about 5x5. I would have been done with it long ago but I kept putting it down to work something else. I think I have knitting ADD. I put it down for several months because I wanted to get everyones Christmas gifts done. I felt so guilty that I hadn't finished it in time for Christmas so I had to get it done for her B-Day. Thanks again. :muah:
