News you can use!

Toe-up sock knitter's here it is, best news since Judy's Magic Cast-On. Ever since I started knitting socks from the toe-up binding off has been a challenge for me. Jeny Staiman has come to save the day! Jeny is a genious to come up with this one. Please try this technique, you will love it♥ Cat Bordhi, grande dame of sock knitting, made this video tutorial of Jeny's bind-off. Enjoy.

After doing research on the bind-off I also found that Jeny made a video of an accompanying cast-on. So I have added it here so that I can have it handy. Jeny says "It is the most elastic cast-on I know -- more elastic than the classic long-tail cast-on. And this one is not a long-tail cast-on so you don't have to worry about how much yarn to leave for the tail". Can you see the possibilites are endless with this one, cuffs and sleeves will be a ease.
