After some thought and research, I found that it is okay to put a cloth binding on the finished blanket. If you google images, you will see some lovely baby blankets knitted or crochet that have some kind of binding on them.
I decided that for this blanket I would find some lovely Minky. It's soft and as pliant and wonderful as the blanket I'm knitting is. More bunny softness!
This shot doesn't show just how perfect the fabric is for this piece, but when finished I am confident you will agree that the red was a better choice than the other option...green.
The green didn't POP like the red does.
Just added a new ball of yarn, and I'd have to say I'm about halfway done now.
More to come!
Until next time.....
