Easy Crocheted Edging
This grackle has gone fancy.

Every once in a while, you hook a rug that calls out for a little special treatment, something with a little pizzazz to finish it off with a flair. My Deck the Halls was one of those rugs. The stately grackle with the ornament kept demanding a special edging, something suitable for the holiday season. Something elegant but not too fussy.
What would satisfy the demanding bird? A little crocheted edging might do the trick. Out came the crochet hook and my stash of wool rug yarns that I use for whipping my rugs.
