I’ve always liked the look of picot (pronounced pee-COH) edging, but hadn’t found simple instructions for it. Recently, while browsing through knitting books at a DC Public Library, I came across Domiknitrix: Whipping your knitting into shape, and found some easy-to-understand instructions. I borrowed the book and made a swatch. I can’t begin to tell you the amount of glee and accomplishment I felt. For days I would pick up the swatch from my dresser and admire it. It was too ridiculous. What can I say? Some people get high from drugs, others from maxing out their credit cards. I get high from learning new knitting skills. It's safe to assume that mine is the healthier way to go what with no financial or medical consequences.
