Carol I love the way you did yours! It reminds me of a granny square throw.

I priced the Retro Throw with Knit Picks Crayon and it's nearly $54. Is Crayon less 'comfy'?

Heh. I think my mom secretly wants it and my grandma keeps asking what I'm going to do with it. Well, I do have 8 more skeins, so I could do another. The LB Homespun on sale was a lot less than the Crayon - I think it ended up costing me $28. And it wasn't that I love Homespun really - I was just trying to find a reasonably priced yarn to use for charity. I've never felt Crayon, so I don't know about the 'comfy' factor.

Thanks for the complements guys!!!!

That's so pretty, I think I might have to make it.

I made a baby blanket with homespun, and while I hated knitting with it, I loved how squishy the blanket came out. So I might have to grab some homespun to make this throw. So pretty.
