A Lovely Mistake

After the storm clouds and sick clouds descended on us last week I was able to spend a lot of time finally finishing this crotchet-edged baby blanket. I started with green thread and stitched once around before I realized my mistake. I did not have enough thread. After a few searches around town, I knew I wouldn't be able to match the color so I found myself with a few options. I could tear out all that work (too painful), I could leave it with just the green edge (too unfinished), or I could keep going with a new color (hmmm?)
I ended up discovering the "picot" stitch. Now the green and pink together mimic the little rosebuds on the fabric perfectly! Hooray for lovely mistakes!
