What are you most proud of? This is my first FO I made with ISM(Bond knitting machine). I acquired ISM last winter but havent had a chance to make a real finished projects out of it. I used KP2 to knit it slightly tighter. The tension was 17sts/4. It was a birthday gift for my father in law, and (I was told that) it fits him very well. Sadly there was a mistake I found after completely finishing it up, but I'm really happy that he loves it so much. I wish I had a modeled shot but he lives far away and he is not very computer savvy, so I dont have any modeled shot yet. It's a very simple design, but I focused making it fit comfortably and stylishly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I jotted down some pattern notes while knitting it. I'm hoping to organize it and share it as a free pattern soon. Maybe I'll work on it after Christmas, when this crazy gift knitting is done. :)
