I reset all the buttons, re-spacing them so I could add the additional, Steeked the button holes and then whip stitched the openings with embroidery floss. Blocked it out last night. This morning, I picked it up and noticed that there were a LOT of dropped/split stitches. (When your eyesight is going, as was my client's, using a slightly fuzzy single wool blend probably wasn't the easiest to knit)... so I fixed that.

3+ hours, but I'm charging her for 3. Oh well. I have rent like everyone else.

Along with a baby blanket, I stayed up until 5:30 am. OY!
