I just finished knitting grand-baby Sarah's blanket. It is 41 inches square before washing and I still need to finish off the ends. I wove in the tails, but I will use sewing thread and a needle to whip the ends down so they don't ravel on me. The Bernat Cottontots is a great yarn, but it can be difficult to secure the ends because it won't split and give you several plies to weave in. Tomorrow I will finish it up and launder it and get it ready to send off to Virginia....along with some books for our daughter to use in homeschooling.
Note: My math was way off....I just took the blanket out of the dryer and laid it out on my mom's carpet and it is 41"x45"
