It's probably time...

to post a pic of this WIP - my garter stitch throw, which I've been knitting away on in the background since about January this year. I based it on a pattern from Erika Knight's Simple Knits for Little Cherubs but used 5 colours rather than four and made it a bit bigger (8 strips with 8 squares per strip, rather than 7x7). The squares are meant to look a bit random, rather than symmetrical and I've knitted it in strips to avoid at least some of the sewing up (I must have been crazy to make something with so much sewing up required!!!).

The picture shows it with the strips in the order I planned, but once I finish the last strip (I'm almost done the second last one) I'll have a bit of a play and see what I like best. And then I plan to knit on a border, in the orange colour (which I was and still am, very taken with). So with any luck, it will be finished in time for next winter!!! Husby has already claimed it as his own.
