Maybe it is a high time to introduce my Perugino throw. It took me less than a couple of hours to decide that I "had to " buy this kit from Colinette. Then some hours to wind the lovely yarn into balls. And the knitting process.... well - took me more than a year. Reason being that I just didn't like knitting it.
Pattern & Yarn: Perugino Throw by Colinette in Cappuccino (sold as a kit. Includes following yarns: Mohair, merino tape Tagliatelli and Giotto)
Needles: maybe 8mm (cannot remember - don't care..)
There was a time last spring when I made the decision to actually knit, knit, knit and finish the sucker. It turned out pretty, however. Although why this colourway is called Cappuccino - evades me. On Colinette website the photo gave me an illusion of frothy toffee-and light rosy shades of caramel or cappuccino - indeed. But in real life - the colourway is all purples, grays and pinks. Don't get me wrong - it isn't that I don't like it. It is just that I expected the colours to be much warmer etc.
That said - it is a very warm and cute throw. Girls love to keep it as a lap blanket when watching children's programmes from the telly (it covers easily all three of them) .
