Shaker Pullover and Cardigan

What are you most proud of? I have had this booklet for about 20 years and have made several patterns, but have wanted to try the Shaker Rib and never could get the concept of "knit into the row below." With so many video tutorials online these days, it is easy to experiment with new stitches! I have finally conquered the Shaker stitch (also known as Fisherman's Rib)! And Buttonholes and Buttonbands class was terrific, giving some great ideas to make the final finishes look professional. Thanks, Anne! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the Buttonholes and Buttonbands class- even if you have been knitting for years, you will learn something new. That elastic trick is great!!
