too tight binding toe-up socks
:?: when I get to the "top" of my "toe-up" socks and bind off in the usual way, they always seem alittle too tight...just that very last row doesn't stretch enough to be comfortable when I put them on( once they're on its OK, just getting over my heel and ankle is tight)
Is there a trick to knitting this bit so its stretchier?
