I like it because it's flatter than the regular fishtail. Here it is just before I took it off the loom:
And here's a photo of it on my wrist, next to an original fishtail. The original one is kind of square, I like the new one better.
Just so you know, I did knit quite a bit yesterday. I got probably six rows done. I will knit more tonight or tomorrow, I promise... This baby's arrival is getting closer and closer, this blanket feels like it will never get done!
