Ta lah-di da.

Done, right down to the braided bow tassels for the corners. Except I don't like it. Three colors was just a bad design decision. Worse, there's a mistake. Well, there are several, but there's one that even a non-knitter will find hard to miss.

Too bad. The baby's almost a year old and this has got to go. Besides, Marc has issued dire threats if I do anything to this beyond the final blocking.

Pattern - A sort of free verse variation on the Blessingway Blanket by Hannah Cuviello from Knitalong. With help from Barbara Walker (center panel cable) and Elsebeth Lavold (cable technique and inspiration for corner panels).
Yarn - Blue Sky Dyed Cotton, 2 in 616/Sky (the light blue), 2 in 628/Azul (the green), and Blue Sky Organic Cotton, 3 in 80/Bone.
Needles - Addi Turbos, size US 9.5.5 mm.

Meh. Unless I want to do yarn reclamation, I'm out of the light blue yarn anyway.
