Just in case you missed this in your email today...
Here is today's blog from Knitting Nuances. She is suggesting a better way to knit the KFB increase that will eliminate that little purl bump. This looks like a great idea!

Thanks; I am going to try that also. Although, I must confess, I often use that "bump" to count as I "read" my st patterns.

Thank you! I like this site! I have added it to my reference bookmarks and copied the article. Looks fairly easy. I like her other tips too.

Another way is to just slip the kb onto needle without working it, no bump.

Thanks for sharing this. I will give it a try the next time there is a KFB in a pattern I am making. I learn so much on KP every day thanks to all of you lovely people.

I agree with Chrissy and the others who just slip the kb. This gives a smooth finish .
