Mods so far:
Body - Didn’t work last waist shaping decrease. I’m short with less of a waist shape, so this worked in my fitting favor. So, 3 decrease rows and 3 increase rows.
Bind off bottom edge using Jenny’s Amazing Stretchy Bind-off
Sleeves - CO 1 st at each center edge of the sleeve pick up for selvage and knit sleeves back and forth. At the ribbing joined to work the ribbing in the round. The sleeve seam is sewn up. Sleeve bind off with JASBO.
Neck band - 2x2 rib with 4US needles
Front bands - 2x2 rib with 4US needles - much better to do the bands with smaller needles. Much more sturdy.
3 stitch button holes.

Exactly 30 days for the knitting. I’ll add sweater weight and yarn leftover weight, and some good FO photos in the next few days.

I have 60g of yarn left out of 5 skeins.

Love the final sweater!
