Prez’s Thoughts….

I’m really excited about the Bluebonnet Knitting Guild! What a great group of members we have! If you are on Facebook, I hope you are connected to our new Bluebonnet Knitting Guild Members Only group. Let me know if you are not yet connected. I hope it will allow us to connect in a different way than e-mail. We’ll still be using e-mail to communicate as well!

Knit On!

Cheryl Knitting Notes:

Picot Bind-off

This bind-off adds decorative little points along the bind off edge of your fabric. You should plan the spacing on the points prior to binding off. Setup. Bind off 1 or 2 stitches. Step 1. Pass the stitch on the right needle back to the left needle. Step 2. Cast on 2 stitches using the knitted cast on. Step 3. Bind off 4 or 5 stitches beginning with the 2 you just cast on and continuing across the original stitches. Repeat these 3 steps until all stitches have been bound off.
