Almost there...

I've been following along on this knitalong for quite some time now but have yet to post. I just finished up the body of my Mermaid--it took me forever to do the first half but once I got the hang of the pattern (and devoted more time to it!) the second half went much faster.

I did a provisional cast on since several people on here recommended it, and I'm glad that I did. Much easier for me to do two icord bind offs than pick up all those stitches!

Looking great! My plan is to sew the collar together and then do one LONG i-cord bindoff. No visible seam in the i-cord. Thoughts?

Wow, that is going to look great! Good job!

Thanks! And that's a good idea about sewing the collar before binding off--I didn't think about that.
