I've finished the Carson Throw! Almost ten months of work, thousands of stitches, and it is finished. It's around seven feet in diameter and it took over the entire floor of my sewing room for blocking. I didn't stretch it at all; I just smoothed it out flat, sprayed it with water and let it dry.
It's already received Max's stamp of approval - he took a full bath on it and then settled in for a nap while I worked out this morning. Of course he assisted with the actual knitting as well, climbing inside it, nesting under it, basically testing that it would be a good blanket when it was finished. It's nice and warm and will be perfect for snuggling under on a cold day.
I will be back next week after Thanksgiving, after the turkey coma wears off, and the stretchy pants are again optional. Have a great Thanksgiving if you're celebrating this week!
