I went back and checked my Ravelry notebook- I started the first square in October 2012. [nervous laughter] Here's my blog post of it. Wanted to do a block a month and submit it to the Tunbridge Fair in 2013. Well... better late than never.
I started the cabled border last night and I am knitting it on, rather than knitting separately and then sewing on. The weather has started to cool off just in time because this is a lot of wool to be piled on my lap while I'm adding the border.
