Rounding third....headed home

I completed the third corner and am heading across the top to complete the ribbon!  Woohoo!  Corner three is
identical to corner two as I continue to work four needles of fiber.  Lara asked why I do this.  After completing the base row of offwhite floss, Each of the pink, medium pin, pink and dark pink are completed in the same number of stitches to create the pattern.  I find it is faster to work a series of each color and then come back to the next one and so on. This is versus doing each bend in the ribbon and then moving on.....hope that makes sense to you.  I also feel I can go faster this way.

I certainly would work one row and color at a time for a while, then pick up another color and work that for a couple of inches. I make fewer mistakes this way.

This is a pretty border but we are waiting for What's Next. Stitch faster, Pat!

Whatever makes it go faster or at least feel that way, I am all for it. Looks good!
