Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off, which is fantastic for shawl edges, btw. In retrospect, I would've liked it just as well if I had left out the eyelet rows and knit a bit more garter stitch but no matter. It's done! And I only had 2 grams of yarn left. Love when it works out like that. :)
My second FO is a pair of socks, woooooohoo! Just in time, too, since it's been getting chilly at night. These socks were the May 2011 shipment of the BMFA Rockin' Sock Club. The colorway is Maia, which I adore, and the pattern is Transition Point by Star Athena.
The pattern involves some lovely seed stitch, which I think is underutilized as far as stitches go, and a lot of traveling twisted stitches. It's neat the way everything twists and turns. I modified this one, as well, changing the foot so that the slipped stitches make a 'V' across the top and the rest of the toe is knit in stockinette. It mirrors what happens on the back of the sock and I like the dainty look it gives them.
