What I like about this border is the eyelet rows alternate with the garter stitch rows and giving it a bit more visual interest than the garter ridges around each square, and the fact that I don't have to put all the peripheral stitches on one or two honkin' circular needles to do the border.I will knit each side separately and then bind off the sts using the same strand of yarn. Then I'll sew the corners together.
So when I checked my Projects page in Ravelry to see when I had actually finished knitting the last block, it was July 13, 2009. Exactly three years ago today! How freaky is that? I'm also shocked it's been three years since I finished the knitting and the bag of squares has been sitting in the closet that long.
