The Eternal Edging

I have been knitting this edging forever.  It is like the song that never ends..... 
The next clue came out for the MKAL on Never Not Knitting and I knit 6 rows last night and when I looked this morning, I wondered what I was thinking!  I tried to rip out the one messed up section but I saw that the mistake in the center was repeated on each section.  It took a long time but I had a recliner day so it didn't matter.
Perseverance pays off.
I put a lifeline in this time so I would have  a quicker way to mark a rip back point.
I was able to go on and knit one whole chart so I got it right the second time!

  1. I feel your pain. I was up all night repairing the sleeve on son's cardi. I was seaming it when I found a dropped stitch. I lost all but a few inches of the entire sleeve in the repair process so I'm knitting like a fiend trying to get back to where I was. No fun.

  5. Ripping and fixing is never fun, but your shawl is coming along nicely and you're way ahead of me, since I've only collected clues so far!
