Colinette Absolutely Fabulous throw in the Antique (#11) colourway, halfway done. Being knit at a rate of 8 rows per hour. Approximately 12 hours left to knit, not including fringing (I'm usually not a huge fan of fringe, but I think it is definitely called for in this case). That's a lot of Law and Order reruns!

Colinette Ab Fab Antique Rows 1-116

I'm really liking this knit so far. Some of the yarns are a bit fiddly to work with, and I've managed to mess up the pattern already (I added in some extra rows to compensate), but you can't tell at all and the final product will be very cuddly and soft and warm.

This is a present for my mom, I can't recall which occasion (birthday? Christmas?) it's supposed to be for. At any rate, it will get done this year. =)

Wow! That throw looks great! I know your mom will love it. I'm not a fan of fringe either, but I can see how this throw would call for it. Looks so warm and cuddly!!

This is beautiful! I love the colors, the lace pattern, the texture and the wavy effect. Your mother is going to love it.
