Cramped Up

So, picking up and knitting 344 stitches on size one needles with string really cramps up my fingers. The stitches were so tiny that I couldn't just get the needle to pick them up. I didn't have a tiny crochet hook, so had to fahion one out of a paper clip. It worked pretty well. All that work was for the edging and straps of the tank. All that's left are the button bands and actually sewing on the buttons. Could this project really be finished during the weekend? I hope so!
