I love making edgings and always have one on the go.
I use a block pillow and keep moving the blocks around. My edgings pillow has bigger blocks so I can make a reasonable length before I need to swap

I hope you enjoy working this new (for you)lace. Square tallies - use the Gate method - the central passive crosses from one side to the other at the finish (ie- worker is #2 bobbin, but finishes in #3 place at the end_) but that does not really make much difference when doing Leaf tallies. If doing something like a cucumber foot - of a series of square tallies, - try to always have the central passive crossing in the same direction, as the light will catch it differently if the odd one has it going in the opposite direction! Only exception I have found is in Honiton diamond filling!
