The other night I finally figured out how to "bind off" on the fabric for my cablenon purse. The purse had been sitting on the pretty red knitting needle, last row complete, for about 2-3 weeks now. I had attempted to understand the diagrams of binding off before, but sometimes you just have to take a break from something and come back to it and it will make more sense. I also have been Tivo'ing the HGTV network's show, Knitty Gritty and watching a lot of that lately. I think that just gave me a feel for how to read the diagrams in a fresh way. That show is awesome!
