Loved It!

Knitted up beautifully, no seams to finish just my kind of pattern, I am getting tons of complements.

Button holes not in right place, check top photo, the neck when closed with buttons does not follow same line as the rest of the front of jacket, I solved it by putting long loops on buttons so closure is all in line.

HELP!!!! Having problems with the raglan sleeve work.  I K1F&B before marker, then slip the marker and K1F&B again, but no matter what I try it looks like I'm making four sleeves not two!!!!

Totally frustrated...any ideas about what I'm doing wrong?
