Okay . . . I know I'm really testing your limits here.
Because I'm going to show you Yet Another View of my arrows project.
This time, you'll notice the major portion of the knitting is finished (but it is not yet blocked, as evidenced by the candle-weights).
I've got to tell you . . . I have LOVED knitting this thing! It's mindlessful. It uses up stash yarn (but not as much as you'd think). It allows for creativity. It's FUN. And it looks cool, too.
But I am at a critical juncture.
And maybe y'all can help.
Does it need a border? (The pattern calls for attached i-cord or single crochet. I'm thinking a NO on the attached i-cord because it seems too heavy, and besides . . . it would take forever. But I could be on board with single crochet.)
And, if yes, what color? (I could do a border using any of the yarns in the shawl -- or I could really shake things up and do something totally unexpected.)
I'm not convinced, though, that it needs a border. (Because I slipped the first stitch at the beginning of each row, it is quite neat just the way it is.)
Here are separate view of each wing . . . just to help you make suggestions:
What do you think?
Border? No border? Color of border, if border?
(I'm also thinking . . . tassels at each end . . . maybe with cool beads . . . Thoughts?)
Also, just to whet your appetites . . .
(Something new to look forward to in future unraveled posts!)
As far as reading . . . I'm still struggling through the new Nicole Krauss novel, Forest Dark. To all you fellow fans of Krauss' The History of Love . . . this one will not measure up. In any way. (And you will be disappointed.) I also just finished The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life that Matters by Emily Esfahani Smith. I found this one after watching the author's TED talk. Good book! Especially if you're interested in crafting a life that matters (which seems to be a theme of mine these days).
