I am looking for a source for knit edge binding, in many colors if possible. I don't want woven bindings, I need something to work with knits. Many thanks

I make bindings from the knit fabric itself. There may be pre-made knit fabric bindings, but if so, I've never seen nor heard of them.

Are you thinking about foldover elastic?

Well, if it is FOE, then Sewzanne's Fabrics is the only place I know of.

(Man, my wishlist is growing every day!!!)

Peggy Sagers recommends using SAF -T -pockets elastic for finishing (like bias tape, but elastic). Stitch in place. Don't stretch as you sew. It comes in several colors. Click on notions at www.saf-t-pockets.com

A great eBay source with outstanding prices is Foldover Plus. Scroll down to check out 78 separate listings. The seller, hobovian, stocks many colors of 5/8" foldover elastic. Just ask and she'll send samples if you'd like them.

I have bought this for a very low price, in all sorts of colors in the garment district in Los Angeles. if it's near you, it's worth the trip. Way fun to see the amazing variety of stuff!

Foe Your Diaper has a huge selection of colors and prints. I have not used them though.

thank you all for the hints... I am close to the LA fabric district (2 or so hours driving) and happily Threads just had a great piece on just this area so I will be off to do some serious poking about soon. Of course, I will wear a reporter's hat for a tell-all in the near future. Cheers!
