Well here it is, the throw that literally took me 7 years to do!!!. I started when I was 8 months pregnant with my daughter, it was for my son (he was 5 at the time).
The problem was that it took me so long to do (well I had to attend to the baby..), that my son was growing up (literally), so I had to keep knitting to keep up with his height...... (It was a good thing that I bought enough wool at the outset - (approximately 15 balls), so I didn't run out)!!!
Anyway, finally finished when he was 12 and he loved it (or at least I told him he did!!)
Turned out alright didn't it? I did make a mistake though, I made it in straight forward rib pattern (knit one, purl one) but I forgot what I was doing once (bound to happen, given the length of time it took to make) - see:
