I meant horizontal as in parallel to the floor, not the direction of the knitting. (Realize that they're horizontal to the knitting direction as a rule.) Just seems it would be possible to make them horizontal (parallel to the floor) even even if you were picking up to knit the button bands, which would as a rule make the buttonholes vertical (perpendicular to the floor) if you were using multiple balls. Not necessary, not efficient, but possible, correct?
