There is nothing I don't love about this sweater: the color, the fit, the ruffly button edge...perfect!

Ridiculously gorgeous!  I can't believe you went from yarn and buttons to a sweater in less than two weeks!  And winging some of it to boot (I'm a crocheter, not a knitter, so I'm not actually sure how challenging it is to change stitches when following a pattern, but I suspect I'd be a complete buffoon at it).  I love the detailing on the off-center closure edge (does that have a shorter name?)  All in all, two, nay, three thumbs up!  (Assuming toes can count!)

Ohhhh...I love this sweater.  I wish I could knit well enough to make this.  I'm so slow it takes me months to make a scarf.  A sweater like this would take me years!

Thanks so much everyone! 

MASCmanik- i am also an avid crochetier and just recently took up knitting ( a year ago) and it's easy to switch some stitch patterns for sure.  though crochetting is always easy.  Crochetting just doesn't produce very nice sweaters, although i did manage to make one crochet sweater that i LOVE!
