Lavender Lap Blanket

The other day, I posted a picture of rows of finished lavender and purple granny squares.  Once all the squares were made, I needed to decide on a color for the edging.  I selected a very pale yellow for that job.  Here is an in-progress picture of that phase.  I know upon first glance that edging yarn looks like  white or off-white, but, it really isn’t.

I had 49 squares to join so my lap blanket was laid out in a seven by seven format.  Seven squares per row and seven rows.  After blocking, the lap blanket measures 45 inches by 48 inches.  Here is what the a picture of the finished and blocked lap blanket.

I think the yellow is more evident in this picture because of the yellow in my bedspread.  What do you think?  Don’t you just love the braid edging?  I love it because it is quick, easy and lies flat.  Now stay tuned for the next project.
