only the good friday

the blue ice throw is done! i called it 'the throw that never ended' because every time i thought i was done adding border- there was another round. but it was definitely worth it :) i started this throw because i wanted to try making strips instead of squares. i liked it. the popcorn stitches i profiled below add texture but they also create warmth. this throw is solid! nice and dense- heavy to hold in warmth.

the pillow was supposed to be a snowflake throw with matching pillow but the stitch style- one with post stitches- was tough for me. i figured them out but the way i needed to move my wrist made my tendonitis flare up and there was no way i was going to make 100+ squares in that stitch. i compromised and made enough for the pillow :) i am happy with the results.

please drop by my etsy shop and take a closer look :)

    Here (South Australia) is spring now and feels just the right time for snuggle up with a nice throw with my little one.
    I love the colors as well! gorgeous!
