Whew! The buttonhole band is finished and cast off! Pieces are still not sewn together so it is looking sort of "wavy" here laying on a beanbag chair, but it is very ribbed at the bottom so it draws it in quite a bit. That's the part I am worried about fitting into! HA! My very first buttonholes! How cute!! (Thanks, Mom! She came and helped me today!)
And now I am finding the next part a challenge also: the seaming up of the sides and setting in the sleeves, though I have two excellent books to help me out on the different options. "Knitting for Dummies" and another book I found called, "The Knitting Answer Book". I tried to start pinning tonight but am too tired to continue...so it will wait!
