I finished & blocked Bibi; one of my kids is modeling it for me, doesn't she look thrilled?

Details: I went down a needle size to get gauge, 5s and 4s instead of 6s and 5s. I knit the medium size & I did need 6 skeins; ran out of the fifth on the final decrease round. This was an easy, quck knit but I really like how it came out, the neckline looks good and lays flat and the decrease rounds towards the end give it a nice shape.

Instead of binding off the underarm stitches, I put them on waste yarn and kitchenered together at the end because I stink at seaming.

All in all I'm really happy with this sweater; I'll probably wear it to work on Friday with some dark trouser style jeans I have.
