Cast off recommendations?

Hey all-
Getting to the bottom of a top down, 2k 3p ribbed sweater in a beautiful Cascade 220 purple, and I'm debating the cast off...

Just cast this off... still need to block it-
Only three days on needle!
Picked up the yarn in Gove City, Kansas.
Did I really just type that?

A little update...

So, Bradley picked me up at the airport in Denver, CO (after a 6 hour drive, bless him!). We had a great night in Downtown Denver, including dinner at PF Changs. I force-fed him Lettuce Wraps. hehe.

Finished... Finally... and lesson learned

A baby blanket I just finished for a teacher friend who's expecting next month. I'm sick of stockingette. Hate working with cotton! Hate it hate it hate it!

4 months and 6 lbs. of wool later...

I finally finished the Elizabeth Zimmerman "Knitted Garter Stitch Blanket" for my new livingroom. Just over 6 pounds of Lion Brand "Fisherman's Wool" with 2 strands held together on size 15s.

Welcome to the 21st Century....

So, inspired by the previous post, and a long running curiousity about felting, I decided to order the pattern for the felted clogs. So I log into Fiber Trends, and place my order. What?

For a "beary" dear friend....

Part one of a teddy bear exchange...
Lamb's Pride 85% wool, 15% mohair.
Pattern based on the "incredible, custom fit raglan sweater" pattern.
How much fun!
