3/14/16 Finally blocked it! It’s a little on the long side and a little snug in the sleeves, but it still looks really awesome.

2/23/16 I got the buttons sewn and all the ends woven in. Now it just needs to be blocked! It’s ridiculously adorable and I can’t wait to put it on the little!

2/21/16 Cast off today. I ended up using a standard bind off on the WS for the button bands. I tried a couple of different ones but that was the neatest and least noticeable. Needs ends woven, blocked, buttons sewn and then will be done. It looks super cute.

2/20/16 Both sleeves are done and one button band is halfway done. I used JSSBO for the body and sleeves. I’m planning on doing k2tog, pass st to left needle for the button band bind offs. I have some buttons that might work but I’m not completely sold. I might look around for something else, too.

2/17/16 Bottom edge is bound off. Now for the sleeves!

2/16/16 I’ve finished the stockinette for the body and am working on the bottom ribbing.

2/10/16 I’ve divided for the sleeves and got a couple inches of the body done. I used up the partial skein of pink that I had and started on the full skein.

2/6/16 Swatched yesterday and got gauge on US2s instead of 3s.

Size 4. Needs US 2.5 and 3 needles. Due 3/14/16.
