I cord edging as a pick up stitch
I am knitting on the i-cord edge to the baby blanket. A free tutorial on someone's blog instructed me. Cast on a few stitches, pick up a stitch on the blanket edge, swing the sttiches to the other end of the needle, knit two together , and keep going.
Of course, what appealed to me was the avoiding of sewing on the i-cord. The yarn is cotton so the edge is a big shaggy, but I like it. I'm picking up closely stitch by stitch to create a ripple effect on the edge . I'll have to block a bit, but only with a spray bottle.
I'm watching Pride and Prejudice with Al. I'm such a sucker for a guy with a pony tail. As long as it is clean as a whistle.
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
