Bind off question
All right, I've knit a long random practice piece in the round and am ready to bind off, but the techniques on the videos don't seem to work for me; I get a weird little hill of knit stiches all in one place. Is there a different way to do this when working circularly, or should I just keep at it and find out what I'm doing wrong?

Here's what I do, as best as I can describe it: Knit the first 2 stitches. Pull the 1st one off the needle over the second one. Knit one more stitch. Pull the one that's now 1st on the needle over this one. Continue like that.
