WS vs RS
I am a relatively new knitter. I am knitting a sweater for my daughter. The button holes are supposed to go on the RS of the sweater. I believe that I put them on the WS. Does it matter which side is the RS or the WS? Thanks.

It won't really matter as long as the buttonholes are on the front edge where you want them.

There used to be a lot of "the buttonholes are on the right so it's a girl's sweater" but any more it really doesn't matter. If it buttons, it's all good.

Once it's buttoned, nobody's going to notice anyway. You're the only one who cares about it, and you shouldn't be so hard on yourself. There's no knitting police here. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the compliments you're going to get about the beautiful sweater you've just completed.
