Living on the edge

The crochet craze continues. I'm doing washcloths in different stitches and in slightly varying sizes to test it all out. It's so much fun!

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?
