I used the same yarn the pattern called for, highly recommended. I put a scalloped edge on instead of picot (seemed more fitting). The hook size was incorrect in the pattern so the squares are a little looser than they should be, but I think it's okay. I'm not 100% happy with the seams -- it's really hard to see the stitches in that ragg yarn! Anyway... here she is, just in time to show off at Debbie's book signing this afternoon!
