On My Needles

I stayed up late one night this week and finished knitting the Ridged Shawl by Vanessa Ewing (Plymouth Yarns)

After blocking, I realized that the edges were not as straight as I thought they would be.

Ridged Shawl knitted by J MorganI have learned from other lovely knitters that I didn’t pick up enough stitches on one edge, and my bind off was a bit tight.

There were suggestions that I rip back those rows of garter stitch on each edge and redo.

I am reluctant to do this; I am too keen to work on something new!

I secretly made it for my daughter for her birthday.

She has already been wearing it, enjoying its warmth and softness:)
