Good videos. It was exactly what I needed at this time. I was a bit embarrassed to realize how simple it was to do a gate post bind-off and continue working. (I'd some how gotten it set in my mind that I needed to pull my yarn end through, thus I only ever used it at the very end.)

I have learnt so much here. I thought I knew how to do this but this makes it look so much easier. Thank you so much.
