Kaffe Fasset Rowan KAL - Almost there

I have knitted all my squares (67 of them) and while the last 'clue' is drying I laid out the blanket. I have to say it looks lovely (even without clue 9). I sewed up the first 2 rows last night. Once I assemble the blanket I am planning to knit an icord edging in Damson (the called-for edge colour). I did an icord edge for my lizard ridge blanket and really like how it looks - plus its a lot quicker than a garter stitch edge!

My little cushion is now complete

Finished! And as a cushion it certainly looks more like a planned project than it did when it was just a lot of squares! This isn't Kaffe's fault - it is wholly because I struggled to copy the colours. Below I show both sides of the cushion - as they are not the same...
It is interesting that I had quite a good "damson" but not enough, so on one side I had to substitute a paler colour, and this is definitely not as good in the mix as the darker one.

Now I am done I want to make another one! Typical!

[I am seriously considering trying out the "red" colourway - also from my stash. I think I would struggle with all the different greens required - and it needs "raspberry" again - I did actually buy a (substitute) raspberry ball for the Martin Storey blanket but seem to have lost it to some Guild joint craft project.]
