My favorite stitch, Linen Stitch: Works on an even number of stitches. Row 1: *Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front. Repeat from * across, ending with a knit 1. Row 2: *Purl 1, slip 1 with yarn in back. Repeat from * across, ending with a purl 1. Repeat these two rows for pattern.

How to Join in the Round Invisibly To join in the round invisibly, cast on one more stitch than your pattern calls for. Then, when you’re ready to join in the round, slip this extra stitch to the left needle. Using the working yarn and the yarn tail held together, knit the first two stitches together. Now drop the tail and knit as you normally would.

Darn it! My socks have a hole ;P Another approach to darning socks.

"The Pretty Way" to pick up stitches

really good Toe-up Gusseted Heel Tutorial

A cool way to join when knitting in the round. Slip the last stitch (that is the first one cast on) from the left-hand needle to the right-hand needle, and then lift what’s now the second stitch on the right needle (the last one cast on) over the first stitch and onto the left needle. Then pull tight and start knitting with the stitches that are on the left-hand part of the needle.
