Kleine Klinge/Small Blade

Noch ein hübsche Damastklinge, diesmal eher klein (ca. 15 cm). Die gefällt mir sehr gut, so dass ich sie wahrscheinlich behalten werde. Mal sehen!
 
Another beautiful damascene blade, this time a small one (about 5" long). I really like this one, so this might be a keeper.

Wade's Blanket CAL: Part 8

Hello and welcome to Part 8 of the Wade's Blanket CAL, hosted by Zooty Owl and Kokopelli Design! This is our last part, the border end edging, which means our journey with Wade's Blanket has come to an end.

Please share your progress and your finished blankets on our Facebook Pages Zooty Owl and Kokopelli Design so that we can include them in our next posts! 
 
Here are the links to the patterns so far:

Introduction

Part 1: Circle in a Granny Square
 

Part 4: Mini Granny Square

Part 5: V-Stitch

Part 6: Dc Rows

Part 7: Diamond Stitch Granny Stripe

My own blanket grew so big that it's difficult to take a good pic of it. My apartment is definitely too small. ;) So here is a progress pic.

 
 
To make it fit a single bed I added ripples to top and bottom and still have 3 rows to go before I can start with the edging and border. Like I said this picture doesn't do the blanket justice, as it looks much better in real life with all the patterns and the vibrant colors.

Sooooooooo, let's see what Zelna worked out for us conecerning edging and borders!

We decided to surprise you with a choice of two borders and two edgings which you can mix and match as you please!
