The baby blanket of scrap DK weight yarn is completed! I thought about adding the half hexagons to the bottom and top of the blanket but since it is only optional, I think I will call this done.
Nyki had to model her beauty on the blanket!
Since I always knit the beginning tail into the first knit row and each of the tails that are cut pull the centers closed and are woven in at the end of each block so when I was done, I was done!
I like that it is very neat on the back side too.
Once blocked, the blanket has a better shape but I didn't block it too aggressively so there was still some texture left. It is now 30" by 36"; just right for a light and airy baby blanket.
I did run out of the light green in the top right polygon--I filled it in with a variegated yarn.
It works for me!

knit by picking up the stitches of its neighbor instead of knitting
a pile of blocks and seaming them together!)
