Forgot to start making buttonholes for some rows, so they aren’t placed as they should; no buttonhole on wasteband, for example. Also, 2 st buttonholes are very small/narrow, so buttoning this jacket may prove a bit tricky. Well, I rarely close all buttons anyway, so it’s probably ok.

Sept.9: finished back piece and started right front.
Sept.22.: going slowly. Right front almost done.
Oct. 5.: Left front almost done. Beginning to think I don’t have enough yarn.
Oct. 8.: Left front finished. Knitting cuffs.
Oct.21: One sleeve done, one to go.
Nov. 4.: Second sleeve done. Now the boring stuff begins.
Nov.5.: Steam pressed the parts, pinned them to a surface to cool and set.
Nov.28.: Finally! all parts joined together, hem sewn up, neck band ok. Finito! Hurray :)

10 grams of yarn left.

And so: buttons….

Photo #1, of the skein, is most true to color.
