After making my mitts yesterday I realized that the bind off edge is REALLY tight and not stretchy at all (I bound off in pattern (k2, p2) with needles 2 sizes larger than what I was knitting with). Maybe I'm still binding off too tightly, I'm not sure.
I'm going to start a pair of mitts and matching cowl for my mom today and I'd like them to turn out a little nicer than the ones I made for myself ;o)
Thanks in advance!!!

I second Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off! Love it!
OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.
Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
this topic is so timely, I can't believe it. Tonight I'll be binding off a pair of toe up socks and was going to spend a little time searching for loose bind offs today before I start them. You guys have done my work for me already!
