It's done!

My octagon motif baby blanket if finished!

I wanted to do another round on the edging, but it started to ripple so I tore it out. It's now complete with just one border of magenta dc.

I like this pattern because it hides the mistakes well. There are a few in there, but I don't think they are obvious.

I plan to do another octagon motif blanket using solid octagons in an effort to use up a lot of scrap yarn. I don't think the solids will be as visually compelling, but I think it will be pretty and there won't be so many ends to work in.

This blanket will be donated to Marine Corps Kids.

The octagon afghan turned out really neat! And it is going to a good cause. Thanks for sharing.

This is gorgeous...but the thought of all those ends to tuck in makes me cringe. What wonderful bright cheery colors.
