I finished the sleeves tonight! I hadn't had a chance to knit for a few days, and I'm slow, anyway. Now they are blocking, and all I need to do is seam, knit the button bands, and the roses... which, now that I list it, still sounds like a lot, haha. But in a few days, maybe a week, I am either going to be estatic, or heartbroken, depending on how it looks on me. I'm praying for the former!

So I am now on the buttonhole band, and they don't really tell you how far apart the buttonholes should be... they just say to "space evenly." How did you space yours? I haven't actually bought the buttons yet, because I am having such a hard time of finding buttons I like at such a small size!

I just measured the band above the highest button on the ribbing to where they tell you the top button should be and then I divided it by 5.  I think they ended up being about an inch and a half apart...I think.  I can give you more information once I get home and see my notes.  Let me know if you need it!

Thanks, I would really appreciate that info. Button placement is so important, imo, and this is one sweater I DEFINITELY don't want to mess up!

cnp71201,

Ahhhhh...I am so sorry.  I totally forgot to post when I got home on Friday and just now remembered when I got on my computer.  So sorry for the delay.  You are probably done with the button band by now but just in case, here is what I did.

There are 4 buttons to place on the button band.  So I measured from the last button on the ribbing to the top of the band and divided that number by 5.  For me that was 2 1/2 inches space between each button.  The very top button that you add per the pattern's instruction makes the space between the top two buttons a little smaller (for me it was 2 inches) but you don't have to worry about that.  Just evenly place the 4 buttons and then follow their instructions for the top one. 

Please let me know if this is totally confusing.  Again, so sorry for the delay in responding.  You are so close...it is exciting!!!

Thanks Jemmer, actually, I skipped the button band and finished my roses and most of the seaming... so now I can finish the seaming and the button band and I'll be done! I will definitely post when I am finished... hopefully day after tomorrow if I have time enough to work on it tomorrow. It is so exciting; I've been waiting for this for a very long time now!

Well, I finally finished! There are a bad picture and some details in the Completed Project board , although I'm going to try to get better ones soon.

Here's the link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111468.0

I still think Jemmer's looks better, but I think mine is pretty nice... but still not sure about actually wearing it.

cnp71201-it looks beautiful!!!  I don't know what you are worried about, I think it looks great on you.  You should definitely wear it out of the house.  All that work needs to be shown off.  Congratulations on a great job!  Doesn't it feel great to be finished?

I've vowed to finish my Rose by Monday 8/21 - in an effort to get it finished, already.  I have a question for those of you who've finished: is there really any reason to knit the button band separately at the end of the process instead of along with the front pieces?  I know you need to pick up the stitches for the ribbed neck, but you could just leave those stitches on holders at the top of the pieces, right?  Any opinions would be very helpful.
