State of the Afghan

One more square down:
This is No.2 most challenging square after the sock square. You would think it was knitted in the round ... Wrong! Starting from the centre, it is knitted flat, increasing stitches at the four corners and then the cast off edge sewn to the cast on one. I can tell you that the last row before the garter-row edge was really crazy ... you can count the bobbles! LOL!

I think it's now time to look at the Great American Afghan tally:

17 squares completed
8 squares waiting to be done

Among the remaining 8, this one would be, well, has been actually, trouble:
I tried several times and just couldn't make it work. Most probably, I would drop this and make an intarsia "signature square".
