One final sweater porn post before I jump into new projects!

A couple of people have asked me how I finished the areas that I cut. When I picked up and knit the button bands, I knit them double the length I wanted (I started in black, and switched to the red about halfway through). Then I was able to fold the button band in half and hand tack it down OVER the mess I had made by cutting and serging. The final results are pretty neat and tidy:

And up at the top (where you can see my stranding as well!)

Finally I have a few glamour shots. The first two were generously taken by Sugaroni, the talent behind Snowangels and half the duo at pica + pixel. What a difference a talented eye and a nifty camera make:

And lastly, the obligatory bathroom mirror shot:
