I attempted binding off last night, and it was really tight. In the video it mentioned to use a bigger size needle if you tend to do it tight, but the biggest one's I have now are 8's, which is what I was using. The binding off part was so much more tight then the rest of the thing..LOL.
I'm sure that with more practice I will get this binding off thing, but I do have a stupid question to ask. When I had one stitch left on my left needle, i knitted over to the right needle, and then took the first loop over the second and bind that off. But, what to I do with the yarn on the needle after that? Make some kind of knot to keep it from unraveling? I don't know what I did, but the whole thing came undone.
Also, I'd like to try and actually make something in this practice time of knitting and casting on and binding off, which is all I can do so far. I have size 6 and size 8 needles and homespun yarn. I'd like to try and make some sort of cozy scarf but I read somewhere that there is something I should know about doing the edges of the scarf...that you can't just knit the last stitch on the needle or something...I hope all this makes sense..LOL.
Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.
Oh, and I've been smoke free for 1 day and 11 hours
