As mentioned previously, we were given two weeks to complete the latest clue.  It was hardly challenging enough to take two weeks, so after weaving the first four squares together I put it aside in favour of working on my Sophies.

I DID pick it up again just before Week 8's clue was to be released.  But when I saw how easy the next clue was, the Mystery Afghan was tossed aside once again.  In all fairness, I had a university assessment to study for.  So another easy week was warmly welcomed.

With my test behind me and the house clean and tidy, I quickly joined the remaining squares together, ready to begin the border:

I must say, after all the moaning about the haphazardness of the colour placement, seeing all 20 squares together, the afghan is growing on me.  (Quite literally!)  I continue to hold onto hope that the border will in fact bring it all together in the end.  Failing that, it's going to be a deliciously soft and snuggly lap blanket ~ looks are of lesser importance.

So here is the aerial view with all the squares woven together:

It's definitely only going to be a lap blanket.  Boo hoo.  Wish I'd known that from the beginning.  I doubt I have enough yarn to make more squares.  But perhaps I could add more to the border if I have yarn let over once it's all done.  Or perhaps accept it as it is.  After all, it's not the size that counts, but how you use it.  Wait, that's something else.  Never mind, as you were.
