Do you Cece the difference?

You may remember a few weeks back I posted some displeasure with the yarn I had chosen to knit Cece. I switched yarns and have been happily knitting away without an update. Here is a progress photo up to the armholes:

And last night while waiting for the night owl to fall asleep, I cast on for the first sleeve (no photo). I will say one thing about the instructions, they are not for the braindead. I am so lucky to have good friends who did not think it odd that I should ask how to make a 3 stitch buttonhole. I googled, and found this (scroll down to the one-row buttonhole). These are the instructions I followed, because I couldn't wait for the response from my friends. I should have though, because their creative genius was to cast off 3 stitches, and when you get to that spot on the next row, cable cast on 3 stitches! DOH!

Cece's looking very cheerful on yet another drizzly day in the PNW. I think you made a wise choice.
