It's done! But here is the funny bit, it isn't nearly as fugly as I thought it was. Finished and laid out to block it is really quite charming n it's own mismatched kind of way. Isn't that odd. All this time I thought it was going to be an atrocious mess and now I quite like it.
In all it is about 130cm square (that is a little over 4 foot for the rest of you) and a lovely size for a good lap blanket. Rohan has given it the snuggly stamp of approval and thus it has been adopted by the family.
The next project is to finish this little cardi. I put it away after doing the front band in rib, something I was not sure I liked once it was done. Bringing it out again today I think it actually looks okay. I might do the other band and then see how I feel about it. The pattern actually called for garter stitch but that just felt a bit mismatched for me with the 1x1 rib and the 2x2 rib and then garter as well. Oh well, as I always say, one of two things will happen - I will either like it or I will redo it.
