Anyone who has ever done a square or rectangular crochet project can attest to how irritating it is to see a lovely piece with slightly jagged edges. I really can't stand it, especially in pieces that are meant to look streamlined. So, finally, I have learned edging. Let me tell you -- I LOVE it! No, seriously, edging is totally transforming my attitude towards crocheting in general. You can see the unsightliness in the picture from yesterday's post. I decided to add a single-crochet edge, and now look at it:
Smooth and even. It makes me so happy. I have a better finished one, but it's a gift for a friend, so I can't share it just yet. I love that I can whip these out while I watch TV. I may bring my yarn to the movie tonight, but I think that would embarrass my taller half far too much. :)
What are you working on?
