Back with an Edge

A picot edge for Esther :o)

My first ever, I had no idea how this pretty edging was constructed and was pleased to see it in action.

As well as this prettiness I've done most of the leg, a more mindless pattern may have been a better companion but I love every slow growing inch of this sock. The Jitterbug yarn is just so springy and lovely.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words; I am feeling better than when I left and had a better than expected time - the hotel was near the beach and I can't fail but feel better, whatever ails me, when I can hear the sea.

Glad you're feeling better Sarah, that's one of the many reasons why I love living so near the sea.

Your Esther looks great so far!

The socks looks beautiful! I love the edging. In fact, I'm just about to do my first picot edged sock so fingers crossed.

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better and that no plastic surgery was needed ;) :)

I'm glad you're doing better, Sarah - I agree, being near the sea always makes things better. :0)

I love the picot edge! I used to be completely intimidated by it, until I just sat down and tried it - it's so pretty.
