A knitters version of Julia and Julie?

Remember that movie that came out a couple of years ago, Julia and Julie.  Julie tries to recreate all of Julia Child's recipes in her cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  The other day I got the Harmony Guide Knit Edgings & Trims book.  150 different edges and trims for your knitting projects.....and then I got an idea.  (Famous last words :)) Why not try to make a sample of all of them?  It would a nice way to boost my knitting skills.  When I can't figure out how to do something knitting wise, I go on You-tube and look for a video. Can't thank those ladies enough who make those videos.
I've made 3 trims so far.  Only 147 more to go!!  :) Actually that's a lie. I made 4 but the 4th one turned out terrible so I'll be re-doing it. 

So far Leaf Edging is my favorite. I would like that at the bottom edge of a sweater.

 If I forgot to mention...if they turn this project into a movie, I'd like Sandra Bullock to play me.  Wonder if she knits?  She should start learning now...just in case :)
