Dusty Afghan put together!

Although the afghan is now together, I still have a couple of ends to weave in. As I bordered each square about 3 times (some two, some four) the squares ended up being approximately 14 1/2 to 15 inches across ... with the join that made the afghan about 47" x 64" - so I didn't need a border to make it any larger!

The border was so simple, yet rather pretty - different than my usual. I would sc, ch3, dc in the same stitch - skip 2 stitches and do the same thing. Then when I got to the corners I would leave enough stitches so that I could sc, ch3, dc and then skip one instead of two. That made the border go around the stitches quite nicely and there was no obvious rubble or stretch or tightening in the corners. Love it!

This may be for my 9 year old grandniece - I'm waiting to hear from my niece to see if she likes these colors, or just wants the all pink one I have waiting to put together next.
I love these colors, and do especially love knit squares! That's probably because I can't knit myself....but all are beautiful.

One down, only 6 more to go! I will no longer be a "Block Hoarder"!!!
