Sweetness and Light


With raw rainy weather outside, this is pretty much the perfect solution inside.

Update: I've been getting a lot of emails and comments about this post since it was featured on Pinterest and other sites — this chunky knit throw was originally from anthropologie, but is no longer available. If you'd like to make your own, you can source similar chunky yarns, oversize knitting needles and other supplies by doing a search on etsy.

Yes, I want exactly this cosy thick blanket - here its freezing (-8°C - 17,8° F).

This plus my gray knit robe...I feel like The Dude (except it does have dark rose-colored tie). Oof. It was bound to happen here sooner or later...so later is not bad compared to Europe. xo

Cassandra Marie said...

Holy crap! I don't even know how you obtain yarn that thick lol! I wonder what size needles you would need...

Giulia said...

Cassandra Marie--I should have my head examined because I ought not look things up in Wikipedia when I'm supposed to do other things. BUT...one Julia Hopson in Cornwall, UK has the Guinness World Record for humongous knitting needles. It's fairly amusing on a cold winter's day. I won't put the link in but it does lead to a cute UK wool site.

What beautiful hands she has.

Robin said...

How does one make this? Do they sell yarn like this? I seriously want one and I don't knit, at all.

automatism said...

Yes, they do make chunky yarn like this, Robin — and knit it with gigantic oversized needles! You can probably find supplies online, too!

Kelly said...

I know this post is over a year old, but I just saw the picture through pinterest and I LOVE the texture and creamy color. I have a pattern for a small afghan that's knit double stranded and seeing this makes me want to dig it out and start working on it again. Beautiful.
