unfortunately this took a lot longer than I thought it would as I had to take big big breaks to allow my blistered fingers to heal...
but the back looked nice and neat when I finally finished tying the very last knot...
oh boy, not even that was relaxing or therapeutic :/
I think by this stage I was so fraught with anguish I just wanted the dang thing finished!
When I snipped it off the frame I finally got some pleasure in this project - I smashed the frame to bits to discourage any thought of ever EVER attempting to carry out another pom-pom project!
This has been an intense project and my admiration goes to all those who make these blankets - you are brave people! But in all of this (and the final stages when my sister helped with the last snippy bits) I persevered and finished it. There have been other projects that have been easier and more enjoyable but never made it to fruition so I am, at least, glad I stuck with it.
So here it is, my finished pom-pom blanket:
