The Way Less Knitted

Your votes were pretty decisive. And, fortunately for me, were in favor of what I rather wanted to do anyway. Always a good thing!

The 22 Leaves Shawlette, seen here tonight with 5 rows to go

22 leaves, 5 rows left

will have a knitted border. However, not the plain garter stitch border as shown in the pattern. It just has too little pizzazz, and I have doubts about it blocking out the way that I want it to.

Thus, I am going to add this small lace border from Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns

lace edging

except without the faggoting (the part at the top). It’s called “Bold-Faggoted Edging”. So without the Bold Faggoting….I guess it’s “Edging”?

Depending on knitting time, this should be blocking this weekend if not before!
