I worked a little bit of my planned edging to see if I like it with the dresser scarf. I think it will be just fine. The thread is size 30 Omega, and the pattern is "Babylace" from Mary Konior's book. Onward!
UPDATE - The edging has stalled after about 13 inches. I made a mistake that has to be cut back, and that may just be the final straw for this pattern, because it was looking a bit heavy on the scarf as I got further along anyway. I'll have to think about it.
