cute! i made those too, and i totally agree that the three-needle bind off is not the most efficent way to do it, because the seams on mine turned out the same way. oh well. the color of yours is great, too!
still, it looks beautiful... i saw that pattern and saved it for future use if i ever become a truly advanced knitter. it's good to see another version of it instead of just the one in the pattern. lovely, lovely.
