WIP: 6-hour throw
This is the patten found on lionbrand. I'm using lionbrand homesput in boston rose, olive, and decco. This is a gift for my boyfriends' mom.




Here is an updated picture.

I have made this throw too! Isn't it fun to knit on the big needles? I actually picked out the same colours for my second throw, we must have ESP! Looks great!

There's actually a story behind those colors. Ever since my boyfriends mom, Jane, was a little girl she wanted a bedroom with green carpet and mauve walls. A few years ago she retired down to Cape May, NJ. At that time she got her dream bed room. I'm making this throw for her to match her room.

Love the colors! I think she'll love the throw. I've never knit with a needle that size, is it awkward?

It was awkward at first but like anything else I got used to it.
