The mitered square blanket is finished! Seaming it wasn't nearly as much of a pain as I had anticipated; in fact, I almost looked forward to it. You see, we were scheduled to go on a long family car ride. The other members of my family tend to run warm; thus sitting in the car on a sunny day means cranking the air conditioner. While everyone else is comfy cool, I'm freezing! But, with the mitered squares blanket on my lap, I was able to keep warm and busy – a win-win!
I thought about putting a border around it but changed my mind; while this blanket is for my toddler son, I wanted to keep my options open about making it larger as he gets older, and with the edges unfinished I could easily add more squares.
My next project from the Baby Gifts book will be decidedly smaller – check back to see what it will be.
