I am a little obsessed with color blocking lately. This would be a cool way to show some school spirit as well!

My friend is a beginning knitter. She thinks that per the instructions, she should knit the first stitch of every row. However, if she knits the first stitch of every row, then the edge stitch will be in garter stitch, rather than in stockinette. I recommended she work the first and last stitch of every row in stockinette stitch because it forms a neat edge and makes picking up stitches and seaming easy. Do you agree with or have concerns about my recommendation?

I personally would never recommend working edges in stockinette stitch if curls and if you are working pieces that need to be seamed, you really want to avoid as much curling of the edges as you can. To maintain uniform edges, I always slip the first stitch unless I am going to seam them together.
