A realisation!

Tonight while knitting the Nereid fingerless mittens / wrist warmersRavelry link (based on Cookie A’s Pomatomus sock patternRavelry link) I realised that an easier way to do k2tog tbl (knit two together through the back loops) without madly trying to stab through the two stitches is to do a variation on an ssk (the “slip, slip, knit” stitch) where you slip the two stitches purlwise instead of knitwise as per a normal ssk. It is the small realisations like this that make knitting such a fascinating journey of discovery and make me very happy!
