knitting over the edge

Friday, April 08, 2011

Over. A whole book on knitting OVER the edge. The second collection of decorative borders by Nicky Epstein.
So many ideas for creative borders. I love how this book is divided into sections. And, all color coded for that section. It really is so pleasing to the eye.
Unique ribs.
All showcased in lovely red and orange and peach.
Cords.
This is probably my favorite section. Such cool cords! I think it would be so cute to make a hat and put a bunch of that cord fringe around it. Oh, except along the front. That might be annoying to have that fringe in your eyes. And, I love those circles.
Appliques.
I've never experimented much with appliques. But this section is so sweet. Heart appliques. Hugs and kisses, flowers, stars. There are so many fantastic ideas in this section. I envision baby girl sweaters with applique over the edge. (Um, yeah. I guess that's the idea.)
Colors.
If you have a fear of color. Fear no more. And there are charts for just about everything. Dogs, cats, hearts, flowers, bunnies, ribbons, butterflies, moons, suns, snowflakes, stars, ducks, fish, animal print!
Nouveau.
Yep. Totally new and different. This section has some really cool and funky borders. Endless possibilities.


I have two of these books to give away. If interested, please leave a comment here by Monday the 11th at 12 p.m. I will have the random generator choose a couple of numbers.

Have a beautiful weekend!
