The only difficulty I had, was buttoning it after sewing the buttons on (compare picture #2 and #3; I did not re-sew the buttons!) I think the best may be to keep it buttoned once you figured out how ;) Perhaps I should have made buttonholes like “12 swatches” suggested. After reading her comment about the excessive shedding of the Blue Sky Alpaca I did decide against that yarn not so much for myself as for Bettina’s sake; she may not want to wear it much if it sheds that much. However I really like the soft feel of the Blue Sky Alpaca.
