Onto the border

It's been a long journey but I finally decided my blanket was long enough to add a border onto it. I am really excited to finally be stitching the border. This has taken me WAY too long! Enough was enough!

I will have to enlist James another day to act as blanket holder to show you the whole blanket. It's actually quite big. When I mean it's not as long as I wanted I don't mean it's not really long anyway! It goes from my feet all the way up to my neck. Not too shabby. The couple of rows of border will add a bit more too. 

I think I'm going to do 4 colours for the border. More purple than anything but this is me :D It wouldn't be me without purple!

I have started the border by going around and doing essentially a granny stripe. I think it ties in nicely with the blanket. Not sure what else I'm going to use but it's a good way to pick up the edge of the blanket and make it look neat. I just read and looked at what Attic 24 has used and worked out my own pattern. 


I do love the colours in this blanket. :D It's so close to a finish! 

But you can kinda see the threads poking out the top there? Yeah I have about 80 million ends to sew in eventually! Oh well!

It's my goal tonight to spend some time working on it. Great goal I think :D

Happy Stitching, 
Caitlin
