Is this the cutest little sweater or WHAT?

It’s from the Seven Things That Can Make or Break a Sweater book.  I started and finished the whole thing in Tahoe.  I used Cascade 220 Superwash — despite what the pattern calls for, it took less than 1 ball.  Get a load of the buttons:

It’s for a friend expecting a baby boy in the fall.  I don’t want to say tooooo much more on the off-(very off!) chance she sees this post.  I followed the shawl-collar modifications from the Ready, Set, Knit podcast from Webs.

There are definitely some errors in the Webs directions (at least the version I printed a few months ago).  And although I followed the book’s directions exactly, my button holes blow.  But otherwise I am very happy with how this turned out.
