Last night, I sat quietly in my room and despite the cramping in my hands, I finally finished the Montauk Throw. 7 months, 1,500 yards of fiber, 440 rows, and 71,280 stitches later, here it is in all of its glory:
I didn’t quite make it to the Ravelympics finish line, partially due to the fact that Jaime and I were out shopping all weekend, but I’m okay with that. The throw is a very generous 64″ long by 39″ wide – the perfect snuggling-with-the-hubby size. The garter stitch makes it nice and squishy and the DK weight yarn gives the throw a beautiful drape. I love how the gray is flecked with caramel, cream and slate-colored tweed neps.
Here is a closeup of the 6×6 ribbing on the edge, which was picked up and knit after the main body was finished:
I am in love. Tonight hubby and I are going to take it out for its first spin, on the couch while we catch up on LOST.
