Hi all! I have finally tackled the Tree of Life afghan
(the reason I wanted to learn how to knit in the first place.)
I am having to sew the border when I get to that point and wanted a neat edge. Slipping the 1st stitch on the knit side with the yarn in back makes a nice chain...
How should I slip the 1st stitch on the purl side for a nice edge? Slipping it wyif looks like crap! (big loopy chain) I just started to purl that 1st stitch instead.
Should I purl the last stitch of the knit row, then slip it on the other side wyib?
(or am I being silly and should just quit worrying about the edges. It's not like I haven't sewn on borders and been just fine before...) I just soooo want this one to turn out as close to perfect as I can get it.
