I really liked this Anthropologie throw:
http://s7ondemand1.scene7.com/is/image/Anthropologie/69409_frt?$main265x295$ and thought it would be easy and cheaper to make it myself. I was very wrong... This project ended up being particularly stressfull, and it is heavy enough to be a rug!
The cream colored sections are made with either three strands of red heart yarn or one chunky and one worsted strand of wool-ease. If I were to do it all over again, I'd just use one strand of chunky wool-ease and a smaller hook. It's entirly done in hdc- Here it is in action:

Gosh, I must be tired, it took me a while to figure out how you were sitting. I thought you were sitting straight at first, and that it was your shoulder showing under your chin. Brain went: "Wth? Does she have an extra arm growing out of her arse?"
But then I woke up Tongue

Anyway, I really like your throw, even if it's heavy it looks very cozy. But then again, I appreciate a bit of weight, feels like it won't slip off on its own then Smiley

I like it!  It reminds me a lot of the Hudson's Bay blankets.  I've always wanted one.

That made me laugh. Out loud. Really hard.

Anyway, it looks awesome, and I'm glad to know that I'm not the only who sits at the computer like that...
