Picking Up Stitches Vertical Edge

The blue edge was my first attempt. I used the 1-2-3-skip method of picking up plus a needle 2 sizes smaller but it still looked a bit tight. Then I realised that as I was really concentrating on find the correct hole to pick up though I was much more tense than I would normally be when knitting. So I chilled out a bit and started my second attempt in red - and Chris, I hope you don’t mind but I amended the mantra to 1-2-3-skip-relax?
