IT'S DONE!!!!
I FINALLY DID IT!!!!!! I FINISHED MY FRIEND'S THROW!!!!!!
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.
