So, I picked up my languishing Central Park Hoodie from last year, which I'd avoided working on because I had 316 stitches to pick up for the button bands. I think I'd rather have a rectal exam than pick up 316 stitches; that's how much I hate picking. up. freakin'. STITCHES! But they're all behind me now, as are my very first buttonholes (wheee!), which look just perfect if I must say so myself. That's the left band on the left, sans buttons, and that's the right band on the, well, the right (how clever am I?)
All that's left is the seaming. Woot! Woot!
