I'm knitting a summer sweater called Laar for Ellie. I'm using the pattern yarn, a Zephyr silk-wool blend.
My swatch was, miraculously, dead on gauge.
Then I started casting on: a knitted on cast on, cast on 5 and cast off 2, for some 200 plus stitches. Yes, this will make a beautiful picot edging at the bottom of the sweater, but I'm afraid it may also leave me blind. And, the yarn likes to split. Casting on alone may be a long term project. I wonder if Laar will be worth it?

I bet Ellie thinks it will be worth it.
What about the other kind of picot hem, where you fold the hem? Or would that add too much bulk and reduce the swinginess of the sweater?
In the end, I bet it will be worth it!
