Its getting there...

My little knitting project is almost done. Both left and right front sides are done even though they both have knitted pockets (which were much easier than I expected). Just started on the arm hole band thing and then the button band -- which is tricky as I have to cast off 4 mid row and cast on 4 on the next row.

That seems fine until I try to do it and the cast on makes all the stitches on the wrong side of the thread... so it looks lumpy.

Anyway, I'm probably too tired and not thinking straight... so bedtime and I'll look at it afresh in the morning. Unless one of you other time zone knitters can explain it more clearly than the 1940s British pattern I have!
