My god.. Its a monster!

The Brioche throw is still growing, as you can see:

It's been fantastic to knit since it turned cold though as it covers my legs and keeps them warm while it grows. It had an outing to the Forth on Tuesday too where I discovered it is no longer the most portable project in the world!
And an extreme close up:

Im still loving the colours but ive decided to no longer carry the yarns up one side. I was pulling it a bit too tight seemingly and that side was in danger of ending up several inches shorter than the other side. So im ignoring the horrific task of trying to sort the ends out.. I have another 15 inches before it becomes an issue anyway. One of my greatest fears is that the cats will claim my beautiful throw as their own (as cats do with anything soft and comfy). Here is Molly failing to reassure me that she has no interest in the throw whatsoever:

Ive added my official gold medal to the sidebar for finishing my olympic challenge but since Whit went to the trouble of making it I thought i'd also display my Team DPN gold medal with pride!
