New Home Throw

My blog posts have been slow and far between for two main reasons. Firstly, I have been knitting less, and I have been knitting a lot of repeats. The following is a throw for our newly renovated main floor. I gave it to my husband for Christmas this past year. It is also a repeat of my favourite baby blanket from my Stitch'n'Bitch book, only larger. I used Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn, which was mostly trouble. The yarn is hollow, chunky and made out of nylon and cotton, thus making it impossible to weave and hide ends even on the end. I tried so many different methods and still am not completely satisfied with the look when changing balls of yarn. I used 6 balls for this giant blanket on size 8mm needles and casted on 180.
