oh thank god for this site!

Hey, don't worry about a few extra picked-up stitches for a button band. Just keep the buttonhole spacing above those extra stitches, and you won't notice! Or, if it's more than a few stitches, just distribute them between the buttonholes, so they're still evenly spaced.

As far as your decrease goes, the part in quotes should give you 4 less stitches. Do they call for this series twice in the row? That would leave 38 stitches. K2tog is a single decrease, and in the quotes you are working it 4 times = 4 fewer stitches.

Hope that helps!
You're so cute with all your blushing. Hey, teen-knitting rocks! Yay ponchos! :D :D

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
