Throws I love, reprise

Just wanted to add a throw to my previous list of Throws I Love - look at this one, isn't it amazing.
Look at the colours! Amazing. Photo/ project by franknjim i.e. not by me, I am not sure I am clever enough at crocheting for this yet
This is the Cathedral Rose Window Afghan, and this lovely version is by franknjim on Ravelry, thanks franknjim for letting me use your photo! The pattern is available here, and it's actually based on a window in Notre Dame, Paris. This means that my mother, who went to Paris with me this year and has also been telling me how she has not got a crochet throw, ought to start work on this one immediately. If I might recommend Stylecraft Special DK, mother, and a 4mm crochet hook, and we will all admire the finished article when you send me a photograph. I would have thought you would have had it done in a couple of weeks and it should certainly take your mind off your labyrinthitis (poor mum has got labyrinthitis, it's very nasty. What she needs is a good complex crochet project. Cures all ills).

I bought all the yarn for this and the pattern and decided...nope...I have a couple of friends who have made it

Gracey, why nope? Did you think it was just a bit de trop or too much of an epic? - but on the bright side, now you have all that yarn!

I've had that pattern favourited on Ravelry almost since day one! One day I will get around to making it...
