Hallo, all! Long time, no post from me.
Grad school tends to do that (as well as lack of project focus. I feel like a real knitter now, I have 4 projects all on the needles at once!)
So, I've been waiting all week to post here because I wanted something completed to show for my time.
I finished my 4 samples, and if you're curious to see, here's the comparisons of the 4 cast ons and bind offs side by side
Finally made a bag for my sock knitting, needs some tweaking, but it works.
