I am here to tell you that the precise amount of time it takes to pick up stitches along the rather expansive neckline of a Mithril sweater and then do an attached I-Cord edging is the same as the amount of time it takes to watch Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. It was a complete match and a happy coincidence, because I did it all in one go. Unfortunately, because I ended this adventure at 2 am, I'm a little bit brain dead. I'll do a post later these week and leave behind breadcrumbs for anyone who wants some thoughts about using this technique. I'm very pleased with it and found it to be surprisingly easy to do, including the join at the end.
I'll leave you with a photo of my happy hunters, Wingus and Dingus, enjoying a surprisingly pleasant (i.e. not blastingly humid) Saturday and some incredibly vibrant colors going on in my garden this morning.
