I could go another day without comment here, but I should show you that some progress is being made: Like a few rounds...
Here's another shot, showing both the front and back.
I guess I'll finish and then decide if I need to redo the border... It really wants to flop forward. Is blocking all it's cracked up to be?
This is probably the most practical of anything I'm working on... it WILL be SUMMER soon!
PS: The border/monkey blanket is perfect for multi-tasking at knit night tonight!
