I could have sworn there was a tip posted (in recent history!) on Knitting Daily how to avoid having a stretched last stitch when casting off. I can't for the life of me find it no matter what kind of searches I do on the site. Much appreciated if someone saw the same thing and can point me to it, or some other tip on the topic!
Hi I cant remember where I saw it, but im sure it said knit into the stitch below on the last cast off stitch.
Yes, that works, or you can knit the last 2 stitches together before you cast them off as one stitch (hope that makes sense)

Makes sense to me because that is what I do and yep, it works!

I also saw the segment (Getting started: KDTV 612), I can't access to it either but, ... I've found a complete file of a variety of binding off techniques.
Now, we all can save them or print them or both.
Patience, persistence and love are the main ingredients for wonderful knittings.
I thought this was nice and am going to bookmark it for myself. I really like this method. http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2011/01/21/lean-to-the-right-lean-to-the-left-we-re-talking-decreases.aspx
It is easier for me to remember because of the orientation: left leans left - right leans right
