From the title of this post you could easily be forgiven for thinking I was going to tell
you all about some amazing, exotic holiday I've been on ....
well, sorry to disappoint but it's nothing quite that exciting ....
just simply the thoughts ticking away in my head as I carry on knitting
backwards and forwards,
backwards and forwards on my Goldilocks Wrap.
You see, I'm so near to finishing off the main bit now that I am literally
itching to get started on the border.
Without a doubt this is the bit I love most about any project I am working on,
from facecloth to cushion or scarf to blanket,
it's all about the border.
Like underlining a title,
ending a sentence with a full stop or
writing The End at the end of a story,
it's the finishing off that brings it all together,
And I think that one of the reasons crochet has me so totally hooked
is for the sheer number of endless ways there are to add that little personal touch
to something you have made.
Whether it's all about the contrast,
creating a pattern within your border,
going with the less is more approach,
or shell edgings,
zig zaggy or wavy,
whether it's ruffly ruffles
or bobbly bobbles,
or gloriously over the top pompoms,
the world is quite simply your oyster ..
there are no border controls at all !
It's up to you,
it's your choice,
there is no set map.
For me ?
Well, I guess I just cannot resist a good ruffle
and that's where I'm headed with the border for my Goldilocks Wrap ....
How about you - have you got a favourite go to border ?
