Hi everyone!

This was a Christmas gift for my mom. I finished it before Christmas but it took me this long to post it. It took 9 skeins of Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Grass.

Beautiful afghan! I love the feel of Wool-ease Thick & Quick, and it knits up so fast.

This is SO BEAUTIFUL!!! :inlove: I'm glad you posted it--I considered making this, but the picture they have on the Lion Brand website isn't very detailed, and I wondered how it looked before I began this project. I'm glad you posted yours, because your FO DEFINITELY makes it a worthwhile project. Mine was to be a gift too, and it is certainly a beautiful gift worth giving (though I may have a hard time parting with it once it's done!) I really like the color too--I made myself a shawl out of their "chunky" weight yarn in the same color and I love it.

That's gorgeous! I just started the first panel of mine recently, as a wedding gift for my brother. I'm using a different yarn though.

Love the throw, love the big chunky cable. is this the same pattern that is free on knitting daily. I have seen one on there that looks like this which I was thinking of doing. Is it knit in one piece or in rows and sewn together. well done on finishing.

Karina - This pattern is free on the Lionbrand website. It may be the same one on Knitting Daily. This one is knit in rows then sewn together. It was much easier this way because the project is easily portable.

Thanks kbagel, I most likely got my sites mixed up. sensory overload from all the knitting sites I have discovered since joining this forum
