I finished my February Lady Sweater last month. I REALLY like this pattern. I knit the sleeves on US 8 DPNs and the rest of the sweater on US 9 circular needles. The yarn is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in black cherry. This was my first time doing afterthought buttonholes, they were not too tricky but I found it cumbersome to weave in 4 yarn ends for each buttonhole. The buttons are made from tagua nut (also called vegetable ivory).
