Now that I can get pics to upload, I thought I’d finally share a couple of finished objects.
After at least four total rip-outs and restarts, I finally finished my Zoe cardi (pattern by Cheri Christian)! I really like it despite the fact that I feel like the neckline is too big and the Cascades Ultra Pima cotton yarn tends to grow in length.
The Little Girl Pink Baby Blanket (free pattern from caron.com) was made for the first granddaughter of a friend at work. I’m pleased with it but am hoping that someone can suggest a different border if I should use the pattern again. I didn’t realize that the garter stitch border would flip to the backside so severely until I was way too far into it to start over. I’ve since found the article on the TECHknitting blog as to how to prevent the flip, and blocking helped even with the acrylic yarn, but I’d much rather use a different border in the future and avoid the hassle altogether. Would a seed stitch or moss stitch border also flip? Any other suggestions as to a border that won’t flip?
