This turned out to be quite an expensive project. I'll have to remember this the next time I choose yarn for something like this. However, it was well worth the time and effort as the throw really brightens up the room. Looking at it, I almost can't believe I made it myself. Its the sort of thing I normally get craft envy from seeing on someone else's blog or site!
So here are the pictures:
I made 54 large squares (8 rows of 6 squares) and 42 smaller squares which give a border to the longer sides, and then finished the whole project off by doing one more round of granny treble all the way around the edge.
Yarn used: Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran 5x pink, 5x lilac, 5x aubergine, 5x tomato red, 5x turqouise, 11x cream
Hook size: 4.5mm
On a different note..
It felt pretty grim making the commute back into London for the first time since the long weekend today. I had George Harrison on my iPod, reminding me that all things must pass, and darkness only lasts a nighttime. I hope he was right -not for my own life which would be rather pathetic - I'm eternally grateful that my life is what it is -I have no real fears or worries, not compared to others. It made me think of all the terrible things which are happening in the world right now. I hope the light comes again for those people who are suffering now.
