Thank you sock 1 is done...

It's taking me longer than I'd hoped thanks to the Fables I can't keep my hands off of ( I can read and knit, but it's hard when you're reading a beautifully illustrated graphic novel and don't want to break the spine). Mr. G says they're going to make a live action series based on the book. I'll have to hunt for that.

I did not do the kitchner. I will do it again at some point when I can watch Mom do it again, but Bead Knitter, a really gifted blogger with great taste in Spocks :) suggested I do a three needle bind off after turning the sock inside out. This was priceless advice, especially since this was something that I could accomplish while tripping on a migraine (I ache right now:( ) Her blog is just amazing. She has incredible beading skills, like the stuff you see demoed in the Fire Mountain catalogue and think 'Who the hell made that, Da Vinci?'

i always do a 3-needle bind-off by turning the sock inside out. Of course, you can drop a stitch or 2 at the ends of the needles even if you're careful. I still prefer that over kitchener stitch, which I hate doing. i have not tried this, but am planning to try to turn the sock inside out before I do the toe shaping, still knit, but work from the inside, then it's already inside0out when I get there. If you don't try it first, I'll let you know how it works after I try it.
