Hey guys,

My mother taught me to knit over the past year, but it has been years since she last knit and she doesn't remember how to finish up the project.  I am making a scarf and I don't know the correct way to remove it without losing the whole scarf.  I need your help.  Thanks.

Do you mean binding off?

Go to knittinghelp.com and search for binding off. I think that's what you're trying to do.

You need to bind it off. To do that, knit the first two stitches in the row. Put your needle through the first stitch you knit, and pull it over the second stitch you knit, off of the needle. If that doesn't make sense (and it might not, because I think that it's hard to learn/relearn knitting just with reading words), check out knittinghelp.com

I just have a few words: nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak.

That's great! You should try crochet next too, if you haven't yet.

Can't wait to see pictures when you're done. Wink

I will post some photos within the next few days.  I can't wait to show all of you. I really love the site, but haven't posted much of my work.  I posted some photos of a skirt and some earrings I made a few years ago along with 2-3 bags, but that's about it.
