Wow, we're 100% no fringe!! Thanks all for the input, and thanks to Silver as well for the pattern. I just love the 2-sided cable, and I wish you could feel how soft it is!
Anyway, no fringe it is. And the added benefit (which I didn't mention, because I didn't want to sway the decision) is that I can take back the last skein I didn't break into, for a $6.00 refund.
Thanks again, I LOVE this forum!!
