Bind-Off trouble
I always have the problem of my last bind off stitch being kind of loose. Even when I cut the yarn and pull it through the loop, the bind-off edge isn't nearly as even as I would like it to be. I don't know what I could do differently. I could try a different bind-off method....any suggestions??

Just looked at it and the problem she described in the bind-off of that mini sample is exactly what's been happening to me. I'll try her tip next time! :XX:

Lat stitch Mini Video??
I tried looking for the mini-project video for the last stitch bind off and can't find it.

it's the first video here... http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...iques/misc.php

of course it is towards the end of the video but i think the whole thing is worthwhile. There were several "AHA" moments in it for me!
