Monkey in the Middle Afghan Completed

Youngest's monkey in the middle afghan is finally done.  It worked up really easy, the most complicated part was, obviously, the monkey square.  The stockinette stitched squares were pretty tedious but simple. I worked a double crochet border in complementary, variegated yarn around the blanket after I sewed all the squares together.  I didn't bother to block it since it was staying right here in the family and I know for a fact that my three year old couldn't possibly care less if the blanket has a slight and temporary curl.  He's already carrying it everywhere so I also figure that the curl will probably be worked out of it in a few weeks at most.

He seems happy which, of course, makes me happy. :)
