Nearly finished! Mitred square baby blanket

I’m so pleased with how this is going! I started out knitting a few mitred squares a year or so ago, just to give it a go and see how the pattern worked. A year down the line and it’s been addictive! I’ve picked this project up and put it down over the year, but with the imminent arrival of my new baby niece, I’ve picked this back up. The pattern is really easy but effective, its from Mason Dixon Knitting http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mason-Dixon-Knitting-Knitters-Questions/dp/0307236056/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355766554&sr=8-2

Here’s my smaller version. I am now working on a quick border to help neaten up the edges and finish off.
