After I took stock of all the ends of yarn to stitch in, or weave in and crochet over, well it was obvious it had to be a fabric edging.
I fancied pale lilac edging but Tylah asked for cream, to compliment the cot bedding.
And I found a pale cream with a subtle, tiny, almost self coloured spot design on it at Hobbycraft, so ran with that. ( hugely overpriced mind you!)
I cut the bias binding myself - the first time I've ever done it. It may not win any awards but it will hide all those yarn ends thank goodness.
But I couldn't face machine stitching it over the knitting, even with a quilting foot which am sure would have made the job easier.
So I opted to simply hand stitch the edging in position ..........
I know cowardly of me LOL
but the simple running stitches do seem to suit the simplicity of the garter stitch.
Just as well this is done because I'm getting hexi withdrawal symptoms.... and have also had an urge to crochet something simple!
It's the NEC Sewing for Pleasure/Knitting & Stitches/ Hobbycraft trip out on saturday, with our EYES stitchy club and snow is forecast for both saturday and sunday - oh joy -
I am trying to decide what I really need to buy, what and who to look out for and whether I can justify to myself, buying anything at all...........yes, am sure you recognise the dilemma!
Watch this space ........ you know I will be taking photo's lol
