As I mentioned in my last post, I wanted to crochet an edge on my latest finished rug. After trying several inches of crochet, it just did not suit this rug, in my opinion. After a trip to a wonderful local yarn shop to find wool yarn to whip the border, I left empty handed! This shop has lots of beautiful wool yarns, but none of them seem to be the right color! What to do? I came home and considered my color options and decided upon using the actual wool that I used in the background to whip the edges. I didn't want to make the border the focus, I was in the mood for simple. After nearly a whole day of whipping....it's harder when you use 3/8" cut :0)... I finished the edge. I also added a 1 1/2" strip of wool all around on the back just under the whipped edge. My thumb has a "needle pulling" blister, but it is finished! I think I like it.
We have 7 new inches of snow this morning and the sun is shining...winter is certainly beautiful today!
