Tutorial Tuesday: Sock Cast offs!

Hello childrens!
Today ends the  Tutorial on  Toe-up socks.
We end, of course with the cuff.
Binding off a cuff and making it too tight, quite frankly, sucks! Trust me, I've been there!
I give you the best bind off. I use it for lots of other things too. Quite often I use it for other things too.
I present to you : 

Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off 

Personally, I have found that using this bind off has caused my regular bind offs are not as tight. 

Seriously, the best bind off ever!

 Next time I am here, I will cover acid and other kinds of dyes!

I use it for all sorts of things, too. Casting off the bottom of pullovers and sleeves. Hats that are top-down. Toe up socks, of course. Great little castoff!

I've never really liked that cast off. I like this one better:

Work 2 sts. Insert the left needle into the front of the 2 sts just worked. K2tog. Work next st. Insert needle into front of 2 sts on right needle. K2tog. Repeat. It works for knit and purl, and I really like the way it looks. Plus: very stretchy!
