This is how Knitters do it

The Musical One bought a condo. This is her first house. The knitting ladies all got together to make a throw for her living room.  It still needs a good steam - but I ran out of time.  Each stripe in the throw was knit by someone different.  Just about everyone was from Washington but there were a few participants from the East Coast - you know because her sister lives over there and another friend who loves her and wanted to help.

It looks good with her furniture and paint and should keep her warm this winter when she turns the heat down.

  2. Love the colors! So very cheery. If you hadn't told us it needed to be steamed, we wouldn't have noticed!

  5. It's very pretty. I'm sure she'll remember the love that went into it every time she walks into the room.

    I'm so proud of her on your behalf for having her act together enough to buy a condo at her age! And the big sliding glass door makes her living room so bright and cheerful. I know how proud you are of both of your girls; you did well with them.
