Four Seasons Throw

So I'm still working through the yarn I already have (stash-busting, to those of you familiar with the knitting world). A week or so ago, I started a cotton blanket project that is going to be a long haul. (mitered squares like the little blanket I made for Lauren) If I have the fortitude, it will be a full-sized blanket. More on that later, though.

Here's my absolute latest project, born from the stash (you knit three strips, then sew them together):

It's called the four seasons throw. 10 out of the 12 of those colors came from yarn I already have. I bought the dark blue and the second variegated skein to balance things out. I'm going to be punting with that gold, because it's two thinner yarns I plan to knit together.

I think I like the second combination better (the one without the pattern book in it).
What do you think?
While at Fabric Place yesterday, we bought new fabric to cover our dining room chairs. I'm not sure if I'll get to that today (vacation is so busy, you know), but hopefully it will go well.

The colors are rich and luscious, and I love the combination of the solid and the variegated.
