How to Knit: Tutorial 3, Casting-off
Happy Tuesday all!
Today was a wonderful summer’s day here in SA. Hot, vivid blue skies, and signs of growth all around… ooooh I LOVE summer. Winter and me don’t really play nice together, so I am enjoying every moment. I had to collect some photographs for a client today, and it just so happens that the binders’ office is at the flower market.

I really felt a tremendous thankfulness for the beauty I could experience 🙂 I bought some bright pink gerberas, and some purple roses for Linda, some red roses for my mom, and some lovely apricot coloured roses…. and all this was on impulse, I should actually have collected the pics and left, but was so taken by the loveliness…

Step 3. Taking care not to let the second stitch (from Step 1), slip off of the right hand needle, pull the first stitch over the second and allow it to come off the right hand needle.
Step 6. Repeat exactly as before…lift the first stitch over the second, and let it off the right hand needle.
Step 7. Repeat this procedure until the end of the row, where you are left with two stitches on your right hand needle, and nothing on the left.
