My knitting yesterday has paid off, I was able to bind off the front portion of my tabard today. This puts me at the 50% mark which was the goal for Nerd Wars for the end of November.
The Horde motif in the center came out nicely, although if I were to do it again I would use another ball of red (in addition to the other two – as if I don’t get tangled enough already) instead of drawing the yarn across one side of my work. I found the stitches to that side to be far too “poofy” for my liking.
The back side remains to be done, which is a solid black block with the red border, so it should knit up quickly without issue.
