OK, as promised, here's a photo of the knitted throw I made recently for my Mam's sofa:
I think the stripes of colour look yellow, but they're actually meant to be white and gold... A thin stripe of white, with a really thin stripe of gold, then another thin stripe of white.
I'm making similar ones for the chairs. They're not as long, obviously. In fact, I finished one of the two chair ones last night before I went to bed. I haven't had a chance to even take a photo of it yet though, so you'll have to wait to see the chair versions.
