I just put pictures up on my blog of the sweater that I finished last night. It's the first adult sweater that I've ever made so I'm very excited to see if it fits on Christmas day!

It's for my Father-in-law. He picked out the pattern and even went with me to pick out the yarn!

Let me know if you find a bind off technique that works well. One end is nice and square while the other one fans out. UGH!

I just looked a the videos here and I think the "One-Over Two Bind Off" might work for that scarf. Let me know how it turns out - I'm not riping my out at this point.

Wonderful!! Did I miss what yarn you used? I'm thinking of knitting my husband a sweater .... No cables for him, but that yarn might be nice.

I used Wool-Ease Chunky in charcoal. It needed to be washable and this worked well. I'm very pleased with how quickly it knit up - but then again anything bulky weight tends to knit up quickly :)

Very nice Suzie! Dontcha just love that book? I made my DH the Basketcase Jacket...and I loved doing it! Let us know how it finally fit! If the sleeves were picked up at the shoulder area and knit downwards...as was the Basketcase Jacket...you should be able to lengthen or shorten the sleeves easily!

Thanks for sharing your accomplishment! Great job! :thumbsup:
