Ahh, good question! It's pretty easy to explain, so I'll do that for now...and if you still need pictures, just let me know!

You're still going to be knitting that last row. So with the needle full of loops in your left hand and the empty needle in your right, knit TWO stitches. You'll have two loops on your right needle. Then use the left needle to pick up the *bottom* stitch on the right needle, and pull it up, over the other stitch, and off the needle. It should easily loosen up enough to let you do that.

Once that's done, knit another stitch from the left needle to the right. Then use the left needle to move the bottom stitch up, over and off again. Keep doing that until all the stitches are done...you'll have two on your right needle until you move one off, then have one stitch left, knit on another, repeat repeat repeat.

In the VERY end, you'll be left with just ONE stitch on your right needle. When you get there, you cut off the yarn you've been using, leaving a tail that's several inches long. Gently slide the last loop off of the needle and pull the yarn tail through that loop - then pull it tight to make a knot. (I usually tie one more knot very close to the knitting too, just to be SURE it's not coming out!)

And, you're done. Let me know if you need/want pics!

I think it sounds easy enough. I'm going to try it!!! I'll post pics of my finished project. It turned out pretty decent. Few dropped stitches and such but all in all looks ok.
