Amy did such a good job in the discussion about increasing and decreasing, talking about which increases went best with which decreases, that I was wondering if there is a similar discussion about casting-on and binding-off.
Are there any recommendations about which cast-on and bind-off pair best with each other? Or does anyone have opinions? It probably isn’t important most of the time, but I just made a calorimetry and my two edges really didn’t look that much alike. They look pretty good (if I say so myself!), but different.
I usually use the long tail cast-on, but for my calorimetry, I used the cable cast on. I broke my elbow a few weeks ago and I found that I wasn’t limber enough to do the long tail! I wasn’t too good at rotating my hand and moving my thumb. And, I used the Russian bind-off (purl two together, slip stitch from right needle to left needle, repeat). Knitting seemed to be pretty good therapy for my hand and I learned/practiced a few things while I was doing it.
