Since mid-September, I’ve made good progress with the blanket for my sister’s wedding present – I am almost half way with the blanket itself. So far it has not posed too many challenges, just a question of counting. A lot. And I’m really happy to have chosen a pattern that varies in knitting techniques. There is some hope that I will still be sane at the end of the project.
On to the first round of repeating the pattern from the start. Getting the hang of this…
1. What edging to use?
The pattern suggests a leaf pattern. This is beautiful but I want to simplify the feel of the finished blanket and make it more streamlined. I think the bias binding trim looks quite nice.
Or perhaps the zig zag trim.
The advantage is that I could attach both trims directly to the blanket without having to sew on.
Any alternate ideas?
2. How big can a knitted item be before it looks really weird to be taking it out on a train and knitting it?!
What do you think?
Thanks for the collective wisdom.
