Lemons into Lemonade (in a knitting sort of way)

October 18, 2013

Friend Rachel, who’s one of the students in my knitting class, had nearly finished binding off her cotton “butterfly” washcloth when she encountered an extra loopy stitch. You know, the last stitch of a row that can be a bit wonky, the one that can leave you with an extra bump after binding off.
