I'm approaching the end of knitting the little blocks for my Sock Yarn Afghan. I only have 12 left to go. The final tally will be 534 three-inch blocks and 8 larger ones. It's time to think about how I want to finish this. There are several options and the one I'm thinking about right now is to fill in the pointed edges, the Vs, with triangles all the way around to make a large rectangle. I would finish it off with a garter stitch border.
I've been trying out differnt techniques on the side of the afghan to make the triangle but so far they have been messy and don't lie flat. I still have a couple more ideas before I give up and go with a jagged edge afghan. I have a feeling, although I haven't tried it out yet, that the top triangles might work out better. I'll give you an update after a bit more experimentation. I'm open to suggestions, by the way.
