Cozy Striped Blanket Borders Begun!

I am about halfway through L' Engle's Two-Part Invention.
I am really enjoying this; the first time I am re-reading it since
I gave my copy away to a cousin years ago and first 
time since I myself am married.
It's a comforting, real, consoling read.

I decided to do a boarder that is 'ribbed' as it were.
I have not picked up stitches yet as I kept knitting 
only where I already have a 'live' thread going.  
I think I will practice a bit before making the boarder itself,
but am confident that I can do it.

I am pleased that so far I've done the first border section without mistake.
A few times I frogged back slightly but feel
that I am getting the hang of paying attention to my knitting
to do a more constant slightly more complicated stitch. 

I am excited to add a border to the rest of this blanket!
I think it will finish it off nicely. 

I am enjoying the colour combination!
And am already thinking of my next blanket, 
which will be in shades of blue and with continued stitching variations. 
What are you reading and creating?
I would love to hear!
Yarn Along with us!
