Sometimes you make something and you look at it and it’s just meh. There is a simple solution to this. Put a border on it. Borders can really make a so-so project spectacular.
Here is a square from March’s blanket before.
These squares are actually getting borders to make them easier to join but they demonstrate how even a single row of sc in a contrasting color can set things off. Imagine the possibilities with a more complex border. They are limitless and can take a blanket from boring to breathtaking. By the time you finish a blanket you have put so much of yourself into it. You owe it to yourself to spend one last hour staring at a project you might now be sick off. In the end it will be worth it.
