After waiting over a week for the turquoise yarn to come in, and slowly knitting the applied I-cord around the perimeter of the blanket, it is finally done. (Actually when you put something down and just don't knit it, that may not be thought of as slowly knitting). I had to make that little confession. Anyway, I really like the blanket even in it's pre-blocked state.
I'm thinking to make another soon. Just needing to establish in my head what colors--maybe orange and white with a hot pink border?
