You guys are so wonderfully encouraging! Thanks to ya'll and Jeny's suprisingly stretchy bind off, I finished Tubey.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get a picture of both of us looking decent, but at least the sweater looks good.
Am I the only one new to this miracle bind off? It is from knitty fall 2009, how did I miss this? I feel like it is going to revolutionize my knitting.
