Things I Never Learn

I forced myself to finish the bind off of the One & Done shawl. I’m not doing that particular version of picot bind off again. I know I’ve done a better one. This one was wonky when done. I should have stopped and hunted up the one I liked. But of course I didn’t.

You’ll also notice that the ends of the shawl are curved. Yup, that top edge is tight. Mighty tight really. I should have added a YO and dropped it on the next row. I made a note to do this and promptly didn’t.

Fortunately I firmly believe in learning. Even if it’s the same thing over and over and over again.

    The tight edge is my issue with a lot of the slipped stitch edges. I never learn to not use that method! Hope the reality of it is better than the blocking state.

    Oh that old adage, if you always do ,what you have always done , you’ll always get, what you always got! That said I think it is very pretty indeed.

    It’s nice. I don’t think the curled points will detract from its appearance when worn. In fact, it may add a certain je ne sai quoi.

  8. And here i was thinking the curved tips were a great design element –

    If you don’t try new things, you don’t find a technique that might be better. (You also don’t expand your brain power…) Now you know there’s a better picot than this one, and that’s something you’ve got in your toolbox.

  9. Your shawl looks great! I think the curved tips look good 🙂 Sometimes it’s good to try different stuff even if it turns out to be not the best method. Now you know the other picot bindoff is better!

    This is how I had to pin down my Purlbreak. I got the idea from another knitter in the pattern’s project gallery.
