tubular

Okay, I have to rip it out because it's the wrong size, but I needed to share this:


The gorgeous tubular cast-off I learned from TechKnitting.

Just look at that edge:


It's a thing of beauty. And stretchy? Like you wouldn't believe. In fact, so much so that I threaded in a little elastic (visible in the shot above) as I was kitchenering it closed, to make sure it would hold its shape (this is a neckband). What a difference a good finishing technique makes!

In fact, it was so much fun to learn this new finishing technique and have it turn out so lovely that I am looking forward to ripping it out so I can do it again!

Lovely edge! I think I may have to try out the tubular castoff.

Oh, very nice! I'd never really read what the tubular cast off consisted of so thank you for the link.

I must learn that, obviously. Good to see you learning (and sharing!) such useful tidbits.
