Long time no WIP from me! But now I'm making a baby blanket for my friend's little arrival next month - don't know what it's going to be, so I've opted for a nice gender-neutral green colour - although perhaps the butterflies are a smidge feminine
The pattern's made up of 3 motifs from the Knitting on the Edge book (Nicky Epstein) kind of mushed together
- and it's being knit in RYC Cashsoft 4ply, colour Spring (don't ask me why on earth I'm knitting a blanket in 4ply... trust me I've learnt me lesson!
Anyways, I was after a bit of advice, purrrlease
- I'd like to pick up and knit a nice border around the edge when it's done - I have a nice contrasting cream colour (you might be able to see it in the bottom piccie) - but I'm looking for stitch pattern ideas - anyone? Also, would you block the blanket before adding the border? Or just block it all at the same time - the "columns" in the pattern give it quite a lot of sideways stretch so I though blocking before might be useful - what do you think?
Thanks for looking & thanks in advance for any advice! Sorry for waffling away here :yadda: - perhaps I should post this in Patterns to see if anyone has extra ideas there.... :thinking:
