Just an update to show what the CICO looks like.
I'm terrible at taking photos and I apologize for my horrible thumb, but I couldn't really lay this down because it curls up so badly right now as it's knit on size 0 needles when the yarn calls for size 3. This makes me worried about the steek.
Anyway, there are more pics on Ravelry
that show the cast-on and all the extra ends that go with it.
So far I like it but I think I might knit the next on larger needles and maybe change the edging as I notice that many other people's edges are curling a bit.
Since this is a whimsical sort of pattern I'm thinking of these pewter moon face buttons
. Too twee? Should I go with more antique looking buttons
