Go Norman, it's your birthday!

PS when I read your post I "hear" your voice as Norman Bates as his mother (catch all that) That is kind of creepy.

MINE TOO MINE TOO MINE TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a friend showed me a different way.

K2
K those on the right needle together
K1 (you will have 2 stitches again on the right needle) and k those 2 Tog. It is a much much looser BO.

I "shrunk" the opening to a hood on a sweater, basically ruined the dumb thing doing the "normal" BO. I have used this other BO with MUCH success!!!

I just can NOT get it loose no matter how hard I try.

Great Job, Norman! I, too, used to bind off TOO tightly--everything had a curled edge. Then I tried binding off with a larger needle (I find that a needle 2 sizes larger than the needle I used on the pattern works best--YES, I knit that tightly :rollseyes:, but I'm getting better with the tension thing.) It works like a charm--nice flat edge.

Happy Knitting
