I have found a lovely stitch in one of Barbara Walker's books that could work as a knitted on border. In fact, it actually looks like the bow - as in bow and arrow - that Sagittarius is often seen with. If I used the bow idea, I would need some arrows, which isn't bad; but I don't want the pattern to look contrived. Somehow the arrows have to appear naturally - tricky, when was the last time you saw an arrow appear naturally? (and in fact aren't you lucky you haven't)

2. on your computer,
3. watching television,
4. listening to books or music
5. using anything electronic
Enough said. I chose Blue for Aquarius, a fixed air sign. Blue to me says the future, air, maybe not electrical charge, but electronic thrust (blue lightening!)
Capricorn should really be the next sign, in sequence, that I design; but it is a cardinal sign and these signs will be done later. Pisces is a mutable sign and also a dual sign. I already have an idea for the border of this one. It's the main stitch (or stitches) that I'm struggling with.
Oh well, I am at 288 stitches with Sagittarius. I have a few to go before I have to start on the border. Really, things should start to come together now, since we have moved into the sign of Sagittarius. Imagine trying to design a mutable sign under the auspices of a fixed sign - no wonder things weren't happening.
