Please go to my blog to see the finished photo. Sorry, but I really need to get up from the PC.
I choose to do a three-needle bind-off and then stitched up the spilt at the beginning to bring the tips to points.
Tipper, thanks for the good wishes and looking forward to seeing your scarf - are you following the pattern's colors? I love Mission Falls (there's a cotton sweater in my WIP album) and have been thinking about doing the Yarn Harlot's poncho out of the 1824 wool for a while, so thanks for the web link.
