Beautiful - both you and your afghan. It takes a lot to give a loved object to someone else, even if it is your Mom

I just went to look at your inspiration and I have to say I like yours better!! That truly is a work of art!!!!

Now I am very tempted to start one. How did you work the black border? Was it knit separately and then seamed on or did you pick up the stitches and knit?

Thanks! Glad to hear I am paying the inspiration forward, since I was inspired by KathyMarie's (on Ravelry).

Yes, I picked up stitches for the border, here is how I did it:

I laid all 12 squares out 3 x 4 and numbered them like this:

3 2 1
6 5 4
9 8 7
12 11 10

On the following squares, I added border to the right-hand side and top: 1,2,4,5,7,8

On the following squares, I added border to the right-hand side, top and left-hand side: 3,6,9

I added border to the right-hand side, top and bottom of squares 10 & 11.

I added border to all sides of square 12.

Hope that helps!
