The Border..

I started and finished the border last night.. I did a row of sc, two rows of half double crochet , and then 3 half double crochets in each around. It just makes a soft ruffled border. love the way it turned out.   Now to sew in all the ends.




I don't know why my dogs always think they need the newest blanket to lay on. I had the blanket sitting on the back of the chair and she climbed up on it, and wouldn't get off ! This blanket is not dog friendly because of all the holes , I don't want any of their feet to get tangled up in it.
Hopefully I will get some time today to start the sewing in process

This is where I got the inspiration from to make this blanket..http://scottys-place.blogspot.com/2012/05/oh-goodie.html  If you go to Pam's newer posts you can see her progress on this same blanket, done in black ..
For those who have asked , its all acrylic.. mostly red heart for all the colors, the background is mostly hobby lobby I love this yarn , in sea blue.
Thanks for coming by !!

It is beautiful! I am trying to come up with a simple border for my bobble. I think it needs to be soft and uncomplicated like the one you just did. How many stitches do you make for your corners?
