If you’re going to insist on knitting seven miles of boring stockinette, you can at least make it all tidy at the end, right? Right.
Bonus points to everyone who suggested doing turned hems with judy’s magic cast on (rather than with a provisional cast on you have to unzip and pick up). It is, indeed, significantly less fiddly. And while I don’t necessarily mind fiddly, I do want it to be for a good reason. If I can get the same effect with something more streamlined, that’s generally gonna be the way to go!
