No, No Picot.

In the last couple of days I have completed the edging to my sweater. Thrice. I first did the picot edging just like the pattern instructed and then I ripped it out. It looks very nice on Ms. Quiggle's sweater and the other ravelers. I will be doing something different.

I mean, it looked fine, just not for me. I've had to admit to myself that I'm being a bit anal about the edging. There's something about the sweater being done in almost all straight stitch and then ending with a few rows of garter stitch, then picot that is not sitting well with me. I even redid it with a smaller needle and no, not for me.

No garter stitch and picot edging for me.

I have another edging in mind that I'm going to try tomorrow. I want it to be as understated as possible. So, for now, my sweater completed except for the edging.

As you can see, this is the underside of the sweater. I just love flipping a sweater open to see the inside like this. Hats too.

Woah, the inside of your sweater looks nicer than the outside of some sweaters!

The inside looks good and colors are just wow... looking forward to your edging reveal.

I can't wait to see it too. Looks like you picked some great colors to go with the brown!
