I was wondering how this blanket was coming along. You make this seem so easy & do-able.
The yarn & colors worked out nicely.

Thank you so much, thats very encouraging! I especially like the idea of doing a stockinette shawl this way ...

It's lovely, such a soothing color. Great photos and instructions on the steeking, I would have done the same with the facings, never thining of seed stitch until tacking it down. With these stash buster projects, how on earth do you calculate how much yarn you need and how to distribute it evenly thoughout the project?

I think I would have tried to knit the border stitches as part of the tube, then a purl stitch (though I am not sure a vertical line of purls would work as a turning row) and then let the steek stitches be the facing. In theory, in my sinus addled head right now, it works. I might just do a mini sample blanket for my little Yorkie princess to have in her crate. She's only 3.5 pounds, so not intimidating to knit for.
