I somehow knew I'd be working on this today. I just had to finish up the edging though. I burned a day earlier this week just figuring out how I would do it. I had this pattern in the back of my head all along, but for some reason I tried a whole bunch of other things before breaking down and finding the directions for this pattern. It looks complicated, but it isn't. It actually works up very quickly.
Oh, & I did indeed go back and fix the joining on that last strip on the other blanket.
