Well I suppose if we’re being technical, I’ll be sewing in loose ends…because… drum roll!… the main body of the granny stripe blanket is finished!
Yes, tra laaaa, I have finished with my rows, which just leaves sewing in the ends and then hooking a blankety border! I’m afraid I can’t show it to you yet, because this is still a surprise and you never know who’s looking. Besides which, I’m sure you’d rather see it all done and finished with a fanfare, than quickly now, half done!
Anyway, back to the border. I’m very unsure about what to do for the blanket edge. I’d like something pretty, not too fussy, not too wide (because the blanket expanded somewhat in the making) – just something delightful to finish it off. I have spent a long time thinking about it but still not come to a conclusion. I even looked in a book in the library which had patterns for 150 edges and trims and I’ve still not found the right thing. And it has Got to be Right. Because as we all know, the edge can really transform the blanket from something lovely to something L O V E L Y !
So, this is where you find me. Dilemma. Straight edge? Scallop edge? Picot edge? Granny stripe edge? Bobble edge? 3 rows? More? Argh! Please help me! If you can suggest an edge fit for a granny stripe baby blanket, please let me know – I will be forever grateful to receive a tried and trusted pattern…
Thank you in advance,
