As I finished the knitting, I dreamed of felting these cool "test" slippers -- if they worked as planned, I'd be making TONS of 'em for Christmas presents this year. But, as you may not know, ALL my knitting tools (except a few pairs of circs) are in storage as I had packed them in preparation for a transatlantic flight that didn't materialize ... but enough complaining.
What would you use to pull the yarn through the final stitches on a spiral toe? How would you tuck in the yarn from the original cast on? Necessity truly being the mother of invention I used:
a bobby pin
And it worked great.
