Oh this blanket. It is off my needles, blocked and after doing much research and asking many knitters advice. I think I'm going to just have to tack the ends down. Not how I wanted to finish this blanket at SO MUCH work, but what can you do. My options aren't great. I'd rather not have the whole thing fall apart.
Honestly, I don't even want to look at it like this, it makes me so upset! I think I can fix it but I'm pretty sure i'll never be happy with how it turns out.
