Frostline, Finished!

I'm pleased with Frostline.  It was worth all of the miles of stockinette to get here.  And, the lace border, which looked indescribably poor when I finished knitting, sprang right into shape with a gentle block.

It is one of my most colorful knits ever and I adore it.  I'm going to find way to wear it, even during summer!

  1. when you finished the lace border, did you have exactly 18 stitches left for the last repeat? i have 13. i’m not sure if i should rip back or leave as is.

  2. Can you tell me how you did the border? I’m not seeing how it attaches in the pattern. Just to CO on 4 stitches? Where, how?? LOL. Thanks!

  3. Its been so long since I did it that I cant recall the stitch count, but I will try to go back and figure it out.  Interestingly, I had no problems with the border that I can recall, although I had never done one that was knitted on before.  I followed the directions literally and it work.  It perhaps helped that Im a recent convert to the cable cast on, so I liked that for getting started.
    One thing I will say is that I remember reading the directions before I got to the border and I couldnt understand how it was going to work.  But, once I got there, it made total sense.  I sat outside and it went so quickly that it was literally done in a couple of hours, although I had thought it was going to take a lot of time.  Like I say, it has been awhile, so its possible that it was more time than I recall, but I remember being surprised by how easily it work out, although it didnt look good at all until it was blocked.
