FO-My First Adult Sweater
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!

You did a beautiful job on that sweater, it is gorgeous. I am sure your FIL will love it. BTW your son is adorable.

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.
