Feeling Edgy

I am currently pondering over what edging to use on Austin’s Baby Blanket.  Originally I was going to pick up stitches around the edges and knit a few inches in seed stitch, until it occurred to me that I’d need a really long circular needle (which I don’t have) or two medium long circular needles (which I don’t have two of the same size), and therefore decided I really wasn’t up to it.  I mean, at this point, I’ve had it with this blanket.  I just want to be done.

But of course I can’t be done because all these squares have been so meticulously sewn together and are just calling for a knitted edge to bring the whole darn thing together.

So the search continued, I pressed on, and I came across some knitted edge/trim patterns on Lion Brand’s website.  Here are the runner-ups:

Bias Binding
22biasbinding

OR

Zig Zag Rib
29zigzagrib

Nothing too fancy or flashy.  Nothing lacy or holey – don’t want little baby fingers or toes to get caught…

As it stands now, I’m leaning towards the bias binding trim, but I’m in a pretty fickle mood today.  Talk to me in ten minutes.
