November’s needles

Hello, December and Happy Birthday to Mom!

Novembers needles had socks and boots cuffs on them.  I suspect the same will be true in December.

and not binding off in pattern looks like:

I was curious and so I had to try it for myself.  There isn’t a right or wrong, it just depends on what you want the finished edge to look like.  In this case, I wanted the finished edge to match the cast on edge, so I need to bind off in pattern.  Meaning, instead of just knitting and slipping the stitch over, I need to knit or purl, matching the stitch below.
