I finished the mate to my sock-in-a-day sock with a tubular bind-off:
I decided I should learn a new technique from this sock. Now, I did do a Baudelaire heel for the first time on this sock, but was that enough for me? No-o-o. I figured that if I wasn't all that fond of the yarn, I could at least get some more value out of this project by using a new technique. This not very logical, but I did learn a new technique, and you know what? This sock is growing on me, so it's all good. If you spot the mistakes in this bind-off, please don't tell me.
This is a 1x1 bind-off, which I decided I wanted to learn after reading this post of Claudia's, and which I learned from this excellent book:
I undid the bind-off of my sock-in-a-day sock and am trying to re-do it with 2x2 tubular bind-off, which at the moment looks like crap and is going to have to be re-done.
What's that you say? Where did I find my copy of Stanley's book in a wire-bound version? At Kinko's, that's where. For about $7.50, and in about 5 minutes, while I waited, they removed the original spine and wire-bound it, and I couldn't be happier with it. If it were only a little bit cheaper I'd have all of my knitting reference books wire-bound.
