Silly me. I was so eager to finish the Waffleweave Blanket, I forgot to add the plain weave to the final edge.
I had to remove the first bit of plain weave and tie the fringe on both edges with knots. Lots and lots and lots and lots of knots. I’d just zig-zag along the edge but I’m worried that, even with the edge encased in satin blanket binding, the rough handling of a child might lead to unravelling.
I’m afraid my sewing leaves much to be desired. Darn slippery satin edging!
But I’m happy with the result. And the blanket was delivered to the parents this week. I hope they like it!
I can now tick waffleweave off my list of weave structures to try. It was easy to do – easy to thread the warp and easy to weave. I’d definitely weave it again.
