"BO" question

Hi everyone on this site. Hope all of you had a good holiday....This past weekend, I started knitting a pull over vest based on the basic one outlined in Ann Budd's "The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns". I am starting to work on the arm holes and neck line. In the pattern, she indicates to "BO" but doesn't suggest "bind off" techniques.

My newest project is called "Stone Cut Hoodie" got the pattern from Creative Knitting magazine September 2010. This is just the back I am working on. I hope to start the front in a couple of days. This is my first sweater attempt. Making it for my roommate. I think she will look good in it. The 1st pic is of what it should look like. the second is what I have done so far.

The Mother-in-law Shawl

It's wonderful to see what gifts you guys made and received! We're having a wonderful, quiet Monday here in DC. Fire in the fireplace, leftover Christmas breakfast casserole and sourdough coffee cake, and hot tea. My elbow is much better - yesterday for Christmas I got to wash up a bit and put on a new bandage. I felt like a new guy!
