You can never have too many...

... ways to cast on and bind off.
I though I knew quite a lot of way to cast on and bind off; more than the average knitter.  I probably knew more than a dozen cast ons and at least 10 ways to bind off - maybe more - but my new book has shown me so many more options.

Cast On, Bind Off - 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting by Cap Sease is my new knitter-book-BBF. I've already been playing with my options while swatching for gauge, which made having to make a few swatches much more enjoyable as each was a great excuse to try a new CO and BO technique.

So far my favourite new simple BOs are the Icelandic and the Russian, which are similar to a suspended BO - but better.
