Well I think it's sorted!!! I like the finishing round which is simple but holds the whole thing together.
Now I really, really 'need' to get the pattern done and uploaded. That, as you know, takes a lot of doing - not that it's hard - it's just fiddly remembering to put in all the links and to put the images in the right place!!!!
Instead of talking about it - perhaps I ought to just 'do' it!!!
