Colourful Octagons Throw

Got your sunglasses on? I read somewhere the other day that it's a sign of getting old when you start gravitating towards really bright colours. Something to do with that eccentric crazy cat lady thing, I imagine. Whatever it is, I'm really drawn to colourful things- but then I think I always have been. I finished this throw a few days ago and I'm very happy with it. I came across the pattern quite by accident and as soon as I saw it in Sue Pinner's blog I knew I HAD to make it as it's just up my street. It was a CAL and all the details are still up. It's a brilliant pattern and it works up relatively quickly as it's done it chunky/bulky yarn. The giant flowers were done separately and sewn on afterwards. I loved Sue's colour choice and placement so I followed it exactly. I also love how it goes with my Attic 24 Raindrop Cushion which I made a while back in the same colours...
