Oh Jan! Eunny Jang's demo is crystal clear! Please watch it! The most important thing to remember: your waste yarn should be a different color than your garment yarn. She uses med blue waste yarn, light blue garment yarn...but I'd go even farther out there...a blue waste yarn for a red garment!

(I remember seeing this in one of the KDTV-DVD shows)

Thanks, I will tomorrow! I ended up just intending to do a hem. Unfortunately I decided after I'd cast on and gone an inch so when I tried to hem it was difficult to pick up the stitches. So I started to take out the bind off and put it on needles. That is not hard, but annoying and time consuming so I ended up inserting the needle lower in a destination row and cutting it off. Much better, but it's the longest hat project ever. I'm learning a lot though!

Really, it's worth watching the video. It's not hard, just a different technique. Even if you decide not to use it now, it's a good one to file away for later.

Mmm... no, I can pretty well tell you I'm never gonna use this one. But then, I know something you wouldn't have any way of knowing; I'm missing the first 3 fingers of my left hand, so there are some techniques I'm just never gonna be able to use. But there are enough that I CAN use (and others I can fake) to get by on.

The part your seeing is her style of holding the working yarn. I think you could use your way and still come out with the intended pattern. I would give it a try just to learn something new.
