Stretchy Bind Off Suggestions Needed

I have finished the torso of my sweater and now need to do a stretchy bind off 1x1 rib. I have used Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind off on socks and it gives a bit of a ruffled edge, small but still there. I am wondering if there is another stretch bind off that doesn't give that effect. I don't think I need it to be that stretchy either. What have you all used?

"ANGEL" My version from the book "Knitting Mochimochi" by Anna Hrachovec, a great book about a knitted form of amigurumi knitting.

Mosaic Knitting..."MOSAIC 1" pot holder, viewed from both front & "wrong side"

"MOSAIC 1" pot holder 18cmX18cm Pattern from the book "Mosaic Knitting" by Barbara G Walker
This is a good example of 2 color slip stitch knitting. I knitted the whole "thing" in garter stitch making the completed pot holder lay flat, but the 2 colors don't seem to "pop" as they would in stockinette.

Stash-busting Hats

At the last knitting guild meeting, one of the ladies brought a couple of hats she knit out of left-over yarns. She even made up a bunch of "kits" for us! She just put together some odd-ball yarns that were left over and there was not much left to make anything out of them. She used 3-4 yarns together, 10 mm needles, so it is a fast knit.

Tight and tidy cable edges

Hi guys, I was just on YouTube watching an instructional video series by Lucy Neatby about cabling. In part two of the series she shows how to neaten the left hand edge of a cable. This side of the cable is looser due to the way the yarn travels from knit to purl. She shows how you can remedy this by reverse-wrapping the first purl stitch after a series of knit stitches.

7 Day Afghan

7 day afghan, yea right! I remember about two years ago ilhiker a.k.a Mark displayed for all of us a beautiful afghan he knitted and remarked "never again." I should have listened carefully to what he said. A while back I picked up this book at my local Friends of the Library book sale titled "7 Day Afghans," chose the one that I would like to do and got started.

Another Pair Of Socks

This is a pair that I finished yesterday. I did try to match up the stripping again this time and think it came out pretty well. I hope you guys aren't getting tired of seeing socks. I don't post them on here for praise, but just to share my work with you guys. The guild that I'm in is starting a KAL this month for the Ten Stitch Triangle. The Ravelry link is:

Help with duponti silk

I was going through some old stash of yarns and found a ball of duponti silk. I have no idea what yardage it is. I had made a really nice scarf from it a year or so ago. Its a medium size ball. my guess its worsted weight yarn too. Any suggestions?
