More than half way done with the sewn bind off and no using needles either, besides the plastic sewing one I've got of course. I feel a bit cocky with the sewn bind off now. At first I failed 5 or times but I eventually got it, and I'm so happy I did I love the edge it makes. I don't know if this is characteristic of this bind off but I got no stockinette rolling yay! Which is so so handy since I nixed the lace on the bottom of my red cardigan, seeing as how it looked so...over the top and santa like oddly. I'm gonna use the feather and fan lace pattern for the jacket opening collar and cuffs though! I'm hopping it'll look good. I'm a bit worried if I've got enough yarn and time to finish it before Friday morning(opening day for Six Flags Great America). I've finished the body binding off for it now I just need to do the sleeves and then lace accents.

To anyone that reads this, how long did it take you to finish two sleeves? Oh! and any tips on how to fix this? Will it go away when I knit them in the round?

I used the sewn bind off for my two up socks, too. It made a very neat top for the socks.
