FINALLY found a good one!

While thrifting I have somewhat been keeping my eyes peeled for a knit zig-zag throw (or afghan...whatever you call it) but finding a good one, to my liking, is tough. They're usually way too colourful for my liking or the pattern isn't right. I mean, a monochromatic knit zig-zag patterned throw is quite specific - so I knew my chances were slim...but not impossible. Look what I found yesterday:



A black & light gray, zig-zag patterned, knit throw. No flaws. I almost squealed I was so happy! I had to tell not one but THREE people it was taken as I saw them eyeing it while I looked at other things. It will look SO perfect on the foot of my bed & the colours fit perfectly with the direction I'm going in my bedroom (which is light gray & creamy white with accents of gold/brass, black & hot pink...basically the same palette as the rest of my apartment subtract mustard yellow).

Cost? $7.99

Wicked.

Have a great weekend! With the exceptional luck I've been having lately - I think I may be hitting up a few more thrift stores!

(by the way, thank you for all of the suggestions on my last post - keep 'em coming!)

Virtual high five! That will look amazing when the rest of your bedroom comes together. I can't wait to see the end result. One day we will go thrift store shopping together. I'm adding it to my life list. =)

Yes! I love this! I'm actually making my own blanket in zig-zag crochet, but it is very colorful. But I've already thought about doing one in just two colors. You're inspiring me to do it. Although my two colors might be deep red and hot pink. Not exactly non-colorful.

Ok, you seem to have more luck finding what you want than I have of late. So if you spot one of these anywhere can you let me know asap? :)
