Beautiful! You must make 10 sweaters for every one I knit.

So lovely! Your FOs always look so professionally finished. Where in the world did you find buttons that so perfectly match the yarn color?

You're not gonna believe this...back in May...on the LYS YARN CRAWL...I visited Churchmouse Yarn and Teas. Besides having spectacular yarns (as many LYS's do)...Churchmouse had fantastic buttons.

Being the button-hound that I am...I bought these up. I use this shade of brown a lot...or at least...I'm attracted to it, and end up with it! Bought several button collections actually! About 8 of each.

How thrilled I was to rummage my 'brown buttons' bag and spot these gems! Yay! I swear, I didn't buy the yarn for the buttons! I bought the yarn in February at the Pacific Northwest version of Stitches, Madrona Winter Retreat and Yarn Market!

I can't get over how little time it took for you to turn out this masterpiece! I read all of your Ravelry notes and especially liked the part that said this would be one of your favorites because that is exactly what I thought when I first saw the sweater...that it would be one of my favorites.

Awesome! I love the longer ribbing on the bottom and the sleeves! I am amazed that you did not buy those buttons with the yarn!! It's a great color

I think this is my favorite of what you've knitted! It's beautiful . . . and is going on my list. Of course it will take me months longer, because I'm a foot taller than you and knit more slowly, but I'll get there!

You do such great work, wish I was as good, but in the mean time, will just sit back and enjoy what you knit from afar.

Beautiful sweater and work as always!

DO you BO the buttonband edge in pattern?

Could you explain how you make your buttonholes?

I have been trying different ones and haven't come across one I'd use yet in a sweater. All of the ones I've practiced look great at the beginning. It's the top of the hole that looks bad no matter how I finish it off.

Thanks for posting the pictures.
