Finished for the Gold
I finished Am Kamin for the Knitting Olympics gold - with hours to spare after sewing on the buttons (and nope, haven't seen the leaf buttons). It's absolutely lovely - a gorgeous sweater, and really fun reading the Japanese pattern.
Preliminary photos are on my blog, with full project details and close-ups coming tomorrow.
A few thoughts: I used a full stitch for seaming the raglan lines so that the twisted stitches lined up instead of the half stitch I normally used, and it looked great.
There are 7 buttonholes, not six (one is on the collar), for those of you still buying buttons.
I wasn't sure if we were supposed to bind off or place on holders the neckline stitches, so I left them all on holders, and it created a nice seamless transition from body to collar. Worked well, with a few additional stitches picked up from some decreases.

Eager to see your photos, but I can't find your blog address - can you furnish it again? Thanks.
