Seamed and Bordered (but does it need a lining?)
I got the mitered square baby blanket seamed (thanks again for the help!) and it now has a border. If it was for me, I would have chosen different colors for the border, but I wanted very cheery and fun colors since it's for a baby. There's more details (including a photo of the back seams) on my blog.
Now my question is whether or not to add a lining to the back, since it will (hopefully) get a lot of use? Has anyone else added a lining to theirs?
Thanks for all of your kind words. I used the cotton classic that is suggested in the book. I volunteer at a non-profit knitting shop where all proceeds go to cancer research, so I kept picking up fun colors as they caught my eye. I have more than enough left to make another one. I definitely learned a lot about my color preferences by doing this one.
