Give yourself a big pat on the back, Susie :salute:

If that had been me, I know what NEXT year's present would have been.

Just updating to say I gave the throw to my brother this weekend (we didn't see him until New Year) and he was absolutely delighted with it. (He wasn't just pretending, he really did like it).

So all worth it, but, no more black crocheted throws in this lifetime (at least not without posh daylight halogen lamps or laser eye surgery!).

A bit late to the party here, but well done Susie it's fabulous, and well done for breaking through the pain barrier for your brother.
