Seaside Winter Blanket: South Coast Edging

Hello and welcome Seaside CAL-ers! 

Your blankets are all looking quite spectacular and I know a lot of you are eagerly awaiting the edging!    I have provided two slightly different edgings for you to choose from - one a straight lacy edge (Edging A) and the and the other a delicate ruffle (Edging B).  (Note:   Edging B is a very time consuming, yarn hungry edging.)

Important Dates for the remainder of the CAL:

Bonus Mandala 2:  27 September 2016
