It's been a while since my last post, and I hope you all are well and the New Year thus far has brought nothing but goodness and kindness your way.
My last project that I posted on here was a quick throw. I had planned on making several for Christmas, but just now finished my very first one. It came out okay, although the sides curled up quite a bit. I used cream and deco, and I have to say the colors blended pretty good. I did not put any fringe on it, only at my nephews request. I'll take some pix and get them up soon. I do have a question though, is there a certain border I can use that would go well with the basic stock. stitch that will prevent the sides from curling? I know I could do just garter, but how many of them should I do at beginning and end? I think the pattern calls for 37 at cast on. Also, anyone tried any different yarn instead of using homespun for this? I have yet to try the YarnBee Fleece Lite, was considering using Wool Eas Thick and Quick next time, but worried about how it washes. Needs to be sturdy as it is for a child. Could you knit this up on a size 35 instead of 50? Just a thought. Maybe might make it more of a tighter knit than loopey. Anyway, any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
