This project was fun to knit =)

First of all, Thank you Carole, for the beautiful pattern and for your help.

The yarn came in a nice fabric bag, that I used to keep my project.

With this pattern I learnt so much!!!! short rows, ( In this pattern I ve been introduced to a new way to knit short rows) It was really hard for me to understand short rows before.

Then, different ways of decreasing and increasing.
This pattern taught me A LOT!!!

I made the chart bigger, this way was easier to follow it

The yarn is beautiful and the only modification I made to the pattern was to add one additional garter ridges to the button-band.

Tomorrow I’m going to block it and then Im going to add the silver buttons I bought in a tiny shop down town Toronto

Oh! and don’t over think the “at the same time” that was my mistake

-November 17, its cold here =) and I got to wear my sweater, its so so nice, the yarn is soft, Im so happy with it, tons of compliments =)
