I'm back from the MN, and thought I'd see how things are going. Looking forward to Thursday, and hopefully a flood of finished blanket squares! I'm so very ready to see the blanket completed - now that the borders are started, it's hard to be patient...
If you have your square complete, please put it in some sort of small bag, along with your original pattern square (or, if that is missing, write your name on a slip of paper), and slip it in my red Loopy Ewe bag sometime Thursday.
I went on an extensive search for yarn this weekend, and the only color I was happy with was not actually cascade 220 superwash, but in fact an acrylic blend. . . don't hate me - it's only the borders, and you don't have to knit with it!
I've completed the borders on the 8 squares I have, and can't wait to get started on more. Alas, wait I will, since I'll be out of town till Monday.
Here's a photo of the current state of the ABP. The color's a little off in the picture, but you get the idea, I think :)
