Suspended Bind Off

Lately, I have been using the suspended bind off to avoid a too tight bind off. Another method would be to use a needle a size or two larger, but this is handier.
1:Knit two stitches.
*2:Slip first stitch knit off, over second stitch knit,BUT leave it on left needle. (As in bottom picture)
3:Knit next stitch on left needle. (As in top picture. Slip both stitches off left needle.
4: Knit one stitch.
5:Repeat from *

I enjoyed your blog (I found your site in Saturday's Sky). I especially found the link to the stretches helpful. Everytime I knit, crochet or read I have such severe pain in my neck, head and back. I awaken the next day with a whooper of a headache which last all day long. I have to take a few days off from knitting, etc. I do not want to give up the things I love to do and I am going to give those neck stretches a try.
Have a wonderful day.
