It was really pretty but...well, it seemed to need something else and it wasn't fringe What that afghan probably needed was a border. And this book by Jean Leinhauser gives you 50 of them, which can be added to just about any afghan, whether it's knitted or crocheted, to provide the finishing touch. Some of the borders are wide and ruffled, some are narrow and tailored. Others are very feminine, some are more masculine.
