Awesome, especially for your first time! I love the buttons also. And the colour. And your stitches look really even.

I haven't knitted in ages cus if the tiniest little bit of it goes wrong (dropped stitch many rows back, or a row that's a little too loose/tight) I'll unravel a load of it and do it again >_<

Found the tut for ya, Keeks

i have no idea what a lot of that means!

it says cast on 90 stitches...but it says 5 st/1" (5 stitches - 1 inch)?
so isn't that gonna be really wide?!

i really don't understand wtf it's talking about! :'(
