Wow, that looks great, Dollyce! Your backside () looks super!

I've got the first square almost done. I won't have it done in a week like you.

Artlady your blanket looks great.

Did another two logs last night while watching 3 episodes of Heros. That show is a bit grusome at points, but you still want to know what happens to the characters.

There is a mitered border in the book. On page 75 or so.

This is what you basically do:
Pick up stitches along Edge#1...garter for so many ridges til you like its width...and at the same time, increase one stitch at each end (Kf&b) every other row (I think EOR, but maybe every row...I forget.) Bind off.

Do the same for the other 3 edges. Then, finally, mattress seam your angled corners together (this makes the miter for the picture frame look).

I'll look up the exact directions for anyone that is interested in creating this garter stitch 'picture frame' border.

It is appealing to me, and I think I will try it. I post a photo in a few days.

That sounds appealing to me as well. I was thinking you could pick up all the stitches around and get a miter by increasing, but then I remembered the size it would be and how many stitches...

I have another silly question ... man I never thought this could be so confusing....

Anyway... I am having a problem with the way the first few sts look once I start knitting after I have picked up my sts. Here is the deal...

I have one st left on the needle (after BO), I turn the work to the right to begin picking up sts. Once I have picked up the sts that I need, Do I turn my work and begin knitting OR do I slide the work to the other end of the needle and start knitting?

I don't have it in front of me at the moment... but I think I have been sliding the work and them begin knitting.

And for some reason I don't think that is right.

Turn your work and begin knitting. You should pick up stitches on the right side, then turn and begin knitting on the wrong side.

I agree with Lieuvena.

The picked up row is row 1. This is even true when you pick up stitches for the button bands along the front edges for a sweater.

Also, for our LOG CABIN, by turning the work to begin row 2
you'll get a nice purl bump row right next to the "seam".

I saw this throw today and thought about the seamless project here... I know that it's not in different colors but I was thinking that you could Start with the bottom block in one color and when you cast on the stitches for the new blocks you could switch for the whole row or make each block a different color with intarsia...

HTH someone....
