Oh geez. I thought it was simple. You know, over at drops design they aren't answering and I think what I have to do is just try both a purl bind off and a knit bindoff and see what looks better. Poor thing wants to come off the needles finally.
ok, suzieeq, you were absolutely right. Another knitter over at Garnstudio told me that you knit the bind off so it won't curl. Whew. Finally. Now it can come off the needles Sometimes it's hard to think it through.
