0000 Needles!!! I didn't even know they existed...it seems like they would cramp up your hands. Did they??
They did at first - until I figured out another way to control the tension. I pick-knit and I had to wind the perle cotton up/down through all my fingers to get enough resistance that I didn't have a death grip on the needles.
I especially love your choice for the closure...it looks much more elegant than the snaps that were recommended
Thanks for the compliments - I like the buttons better too! I just crocheted over my bindoff and added in the loops for the buttons as I went.
Was it hard to do? And did it take a lot of time? How fast did it knit up?
Amazingly - not that hard - pretty repetitive once you get started. It didn't take that long - but I was really excited to work on it!!
