After a couple of scarfs, I was ready for some thing bigger..........I decided to make a knitted throw since it's getting pretty cold. Half way through, I was like... I could've been done with a scarf 3 TIMES Shocked, but no, I'm just half way through my throw. Tongue
Anyways, here's my first time tackling a big knitting project

flat on my bed

my chair modeling my throw

I got the pattern from lion brand. I haven't block it yet because I don't know where I would be able to do it on ...
In total I used about 101/2 skein of yarn and it took me about 4 weeks. I really like the color. It's a nice natural oatmeal color.

I didn't check the gauge because I was too lazy (I know, I know @_@), now I wish I did because my stitches are just a touch too loose ... good thing it's not really noticeable.

I hope you guys like it. comments?

I'm actually knitting the exact same throw as a late wedding gift to my sister but I've been really slacking on it lately.  However, your's turned out great, it's actually kind of inspired me to get working on mine again!  Great job, I hope mine turns out just as lovely as your's.  Smiley

It's really pretty, I love the seed stitch in between the cables. It looks green to me in the photos but I think I know the oatmeal color you're talking about (assuming you used lionbrand yearn as well). You did very well for your first large knitting project. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

It's lovely! I just want to wrap it around me and watch a movie or someting like that. I really like the design and the colour (as it's shown on my screen). Makes me wanna try some cables. Well done!

Lovely! I wanna make a red one. Or purple.. Hmm..

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
