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!

Yes, that works, or you can knit the last 2 stitches together before you cast them off as one stitch (hope that makes sense)

Hi Lexica,

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.

Ta daaaa!!!!

Now, we all can save them or print them or both.

Bye, bye.

Patience, persistence and love are the main ingredients for wonderful knittings.

Hi All,

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

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
