Lucille's Throw

Finally, it's done! Donna, Laurin, Ericka, Chris, Vicki, Peg, Jean, Fran, Denise and I made knitted 12 inch squares for this throw. It was supposed to be a shawl, but has grown to a nice warm, cozy blanket for Lucille. I found out that it's difficult to fit squares together that you don't knit yourself because they all end up very unique shapes and sizes...beautiful, but not so easy to fit together. I also wanted some sort of color pattern...I tried to alternate the multi colored ones in the blues and purples with the pinks, whites and white/blue ones. Then, the center has the diagonal ones and Chris's dark blue cable square. The border is a single row of single crochet, but I think I'll add something more festive to it later....well, before Wednesday anyway....that's when we'll be giving Lucille the wonderful throw and pillow we made for her. I hope she likes it! We put a lot of time and love into this for her and hope it'll bring her some healing and relaxation : )
