Jigsaw Afghan Update

Time has flown by and it's time for me to get this afghan finished and in the mail.  I started it last October but Christmas knitting and life got in the way and I didn't complete the afghan as quickly as I'd hoped.  It's a baby gift and the little one has been here for a couple of months. 

I've finished 228 squares out of 247 and the border still remains.  The baby is a boy and I'm using less-than-typical colors for a baby but still staying within the range of colors that are considered masculine.  No pinks for this little lad.

I'll explain more about the color choices once the afghan has been delivered.  I'm planning to do a dark green garter stitch border with mitered corners. I'm now working on the last two rows (left).  I've really been enjoying this project and will hate to see it end.  Maybe I'll make another Jigsaw afghan someday.

A reminder:  there is a Jigsaw Afghan knitalong on Ravelry.  Join us, won't you?

That looks like a great pattern, creative aren't you!
I think I told you I'm doing the mystery sock group, I also have a shawlette KAL I'm way behind on and I'm ripping out the second try at fingerless mitts for my sister; I'm having gauge issues!
