Scarf borders & finishes

debmcclintock's picture

A beautiful scarf can be marred by a poorly executed finish on the ends or an "out of balance" border within the body of the scarf.  I've started this group to learn about the different resources folks use to plan their borders or to finish their scarves.  Do you have a hint on how to balance the left and right side of a scarf?  Do you have a favorite weft protector finish that you put on before you twist the fringe.  Do you hem?   Please share!  Please post any written references in magazine articles that you love or that you have written.  No matter if you use your rigid heddle or the lastest electronic loom I hope we will all learn something from each other.
