A while back, I ordered a kit to make this throw. Somewhere along the way, it dawned on me that I didn't want to sew a bunch of strips together, then pick up stitches all the way around for a border.
So it became stripes. Why in the world the palest, palest blue photographed as pink is a mystery. I'm just winging the width of the colors. It's an easy, pretty mindless project, and it's easy to see progress.
