Wow, really nice work! I keep saying I'm going to try socks one of these days ... also, details on the bind-off? I have trouble keeping mine loose enough, even if I go up a needle-size or two.

My own First Sweater is a cardigan that came out too big, but it's still warm and fuzzy so I wear it. I'm making it again, in black this time and a size smaller. I also finally got the bright idea of using stich markers so I could keep track of the pattern as I go. It's easy to get lost with this yarn - hard to tell knit from purl with all the bumps.

Socks are fun.

The bind-off:

Normal knitted bind-off is knit the first stitch. Knit the second stitch. Two stitches on the right hand needle. Pass the first stitch over the second. You'll have one stitch on the right hand needle. Knit the next stitch. Two stitches...

This bind-off is knit the first stitch. Knit the second stitch. Two stitches on right hand needle. Slip the two stitches back to the left hand needle and knit them together.

I will surely have to try that - thanks!

Also, and this me being a fiber snob - there are *much* nicer yarns out there for reasonable prices. Try, for example, http://www.knitpicks.com.
