FO - Noro Silk Garden Blanket
This started out as a throw, I guess, but I got carried away. It took about 36 balls of color 239 Noro Silk Garden and a month. It's just mitered squares knitted together with an attached icord around it to try to keep it from curling. It hasn't been blocked, and I'm not sure it will be, but it will fit on my bed.

That is amazing! So you used an attached i-cord to put them together or just around the edge?
