I just bumped this thread a little higher on the page because it looks like it might fall through the cracks.
I don't know what B &T tightly means. Can you give us more context, or a link to the pattern itself? I'm sure somebody could figure out if so.

B & T tightly
Cut yarn from ball leaving a tail.

Thread tail on to a tapestery needle
Thread needle through the remaining stitches on needle
Pull tail through pull tight and tie off
A basic knot will be fine

I copied above from the information below

A simple demonstration showing how to B&T tightly. This is often used for knitted toys to effect shaping from angelbear.org.uk

It also goes to show you that once on the Internet always on the Internet. Beware big brother has you by the power of universal storage.

I never want to see what I did 6 years ago, by sheer weight of immaturity. I'm sure 6 years from now I'll be equally embarrassed by my 26 year old self.

Just remember, with every cell phone being a video camera, You-tube, FaceBook and blogs everyone knows what you did last night when you were alone behind that closed door. Big Brother doesn't have to do anything your friends will do it for them.

No kidding! (to the Facebook/Twitter thing!) I'm shocked at how much people post on those places! They post the little "check-in" and let everyone know where they are, tell everyone they're on vacation, post their address, and then post pictures of their brand new huge TV or whatnot. They say they only let friends on their page, but then they brag about how many friends they have and say they don't haven't seen some in 20 years. People change a lot in 5 years, let alone 20! Then they wonder why their house was broken into, iPad stolen, children stalked, etc.....
