As of last Wednesday, all 144 squares are joined! Just as my luck would have it, it’s gotten rather warm here too, meaning that the last thing I feel like doing is to sit under a heavy blanket and sew in ends.
I spread it out over our bed to check the size – it’s almost perfect. I could see maybe doing a row or two of edging around the whole thing, also maybe extending the blanket over the sides of the bed a bit more, but it’s basically finished.
That is, apart from nearly 300 ends.
The cats love it.
It is a blanket of friendship! And naps!
