inching along

Since it's the holiday season, and I'm making this for myself (ie low priority) this project has taken the back burner. I am making some progress however, and I thought I'd share some photos. I'm nearly done with the body, which I'm making a little longer than the pattern requires. Just a few more inches of ribbing!
I've tried it on and though it seems really stretchy I'm afraid that it'll be too small. I think I'll have to make the button band extra wide so the fronts will close. Has anyone else done this? I don't want the bands to take over the sweater, but it does need to be functional.

I added several more rows to the button bands to get a little more space. Basically I just added two more "stripes" to each side, and it worked fine.

I'm planning on doing the same thing..mine is the probably-too-tight green sweater a few posts back. People have told me that blocking solved all their problems in this area, but I'm going to add some width just to be safe. You're looking good!
