Pick up and knit
Hey guys--I'm trying to pick up stitches but I am picking up from the bind off edge and it's really tight (I didn't know until after binding off that I should have probably done so w/ larger needles to avoid this problem). Is there anything I can do???!!! Could I use a crochet hood if it's easier and then transfer the new stitches to a knitting needle to continue??

Yes--use the crochet hook--it's a good way to pick up stitches when they're tight.
