Tonight I tackled button holes. The Klutz knitting book illustrates one method of making button holes, but I wanted a wider opening. Searching the web was surprisingly uninformative, but eventually I found a site that illustrated what I wanted. I thought I'd followed the instructions perfectly, but my button holes didn't end up where I expected and and I managed to goof up the stitch count. I suppose that's par for the course for a beginner like myself, but it's still frustrating.
