The Gray Behemoth, End

So, yes, I finished it...


And I'm still learning my camera, so the pictures could be better.

It's about bed-sized...


And in case you're curious, the back side looks like the back side of stockinette stitch...


I finished it up last Monday. Now it's just a matter of getting it to my niece.


Hey, it's only 20 pounds. Not too bad.

Finally, I had to pose with it, just to give you an idea of how big it is...


And now I can go back to focusing on my other projects.

Middle nephew (one of niece's little brothers) is raising money for the American Heart Association. If any of you are so inclined, he would be most grateful for your help. (This link will take you to his page.)

    1. No. There's already a huge selection of these online, and I have no storage ability to make one and then hold on to it indefinitely until it sells. I'll only make them to order if requested.

  11. Oooh, I bet that's comfy to lay under, like a weighted anxiety blanket. Imagine that in a cold room. Ahhh.

    1. I bet it would be much like those weighted blankets. But bulkier.

    1. I don't think it's going anywhere other than her bed. It's quite heavy.
