First, the good news:
The border colour is okay. Once I block it - and block it severely as instructed by Jared Flood - the border will look fine. Not as nice as it would have in the original wool, but fine. I spent weeks looking at all manner of yarn, and I don't think I can do much better.
I love the i-Cord edge. It's easy and makes a nice, thick finished edge. Love it. Now I'm looking at all my other projects deciding where else I can add an iCord edge. Maybe not socks, though.
Now for the bad news:
I ran out of yarn with about 30 sts left to bind off. Well and truly ran out. Not a scrap anywhere that I could salvage. So now I'm undoing the iCord edge and then I'll be ripping out the last row of lace to start the border again.
White stuff fell from the sky yesterday. Not a lot, and it didn't stay, but nonetheless, I typed the s-word yesterday and look what happened. My fault, sorry.
