So, I’m “finished” with the Tilting Blocks afghan. (http://arabianknitsfree.blogspot.com/2006/08/tilting-blocks-baby-blanket.html) It’s for a friend of mine. She wasn’t sure of the baby’s gender until I had already begun (and I had the yellow yarn in my stash) so I started it and added the lavender when I found out it was a girl. Anyway. I had always planned on adding a border to it with the girlish or boyish color. I have a bunch of leftover lavender so I still can do it. I bought Nicky Epstein’s “Knitting on the Edge” so I’ve got a ton of patterns. I just need some opinions. Should I add an edge and if so, what kind? (Lacy, ribbing, fringe?) I’m not a big fan of the knotted fringe because it seems to unravel on blankets rather quickly when they are used and washed a lot. If you have the book and have a specific pattern in mind, that’d be great, but any advice would be helpful. I keep paging through the 350 patterns and getting overwhelmed!
The picture makes it look a little darker than it is. It’s a pale (lemon) yellow and light lavender. It measures 30" x 33". It has a garter stitch border.
