More sock knitting tips

I write this, as a note to myself more than anything, because twice in the past couple of days I’ve heard mention of this casting off technique for stretchy tops of socks (when knitting toe-up)

Jenny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off – http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall09/FEATjssbo.php

I will try this when I do my first toe up sock.

  1. It is surprisingly stretchy and it works very nicely. I used to do EZ’s sewn cast off on toe-up socks, but this is less hassle, because you knit it. No need to estimate the yardage for the cast-off or find a sewing needle.
