Summer Sweater Knit Along - Bound Off!

yarn: yellow label dk by tanis fiber arts in colorway pink grapefruit pattern: something silver by veera valimaki
i got to bind off my sweater for the summer sweater knit along on the weekend!!!!!! it felt soooooo good to get that garter finished. i love garter but for some reason the garter on my cardi felt like it was taking me forever to get through it.  it's all done now though and the sweater is fitting perfectly!  i cannot wait to get it done now to wear. it's for sure going to be my staple cardigan for the fall/winter and the color....don't even get me started on how much i love the color. yum!

i am equally in love with my delectable bind off.  not tooting my own horn or, but i was very nervous to get a nice even edge for the garter and the cardigan ( i hate wonky hems) and took my sweet time binding off as neatly as i could and boy does it look fab!!! i keep pulling it out to look at how nice it is.  it sure pays to be patient and not rush this step.  it's worth it to finish your garments nicely and evenly to get a professional finish.

i also am really excited to get my rockin' pockets done! i love pockets on everything and these are in the best spot and look fab! i can't wait to knit and stitch a little pocket luv to my cardi.

wanna see me with it on?  i knew you would....

here's a shot of the back of  my "something silver" that jane snapped of me last night.  we all headed out with the kids for a bbq and a concert in the park.  it was so fun to listen to some awesome music, dance with the kiddos and hang with my knitty pals (jane, rebecca, mandy, amy) and of course, try on and show off our knitty goodies!!!
