Binding Off
I have just completed my first project or so I thought. I think I binded off properly but at the end my yarn is still unloosing. I am not sure how to fix this. Help please! Thank you in advance!

You need to fasten off that last stitch so that the bind off can't pull out. When you get to the last stitch, cut the yarn leaving about a 6 inch tail and pull the yarn through the last stitch.
This will keep the knitting from unraveling. Even if you have a rather short tail at this point you can do this, then weave the tail in and use a few sewing stitches if necessary, to tack it down so it won't pull out.

Thank you! I have not been able to try it but I will as soon as I can. I hope it it will work because I do have a rather short tail.

It will probably work fine but if not, do you have some more of the yarn so you could go back and add a longer piece in?
