I haven't talked much about it, but I am still hard at work on my Wisterious Top for the Very Shannon Summer Sweater Knit-a-Long. I'm actually pulling in to the home stretch - it doesn't look like much but I just have to do the sleeve edging and block it, and then I'm done! I didn't think I was going to make the KAL deadline of Sept. 24, but I think I will pull it off :)
I've done only some minor modifications that I'll list when the top is blocked and finished. I only have one decision left to make: BUTTONS. I love vintage buttons (someday I'll have to do a post about my collection of vintage buttons). And one of the things that drew me to this knit top pattern was the cute button detail around the neckline and shoulders.

I have four good choices right now. 1) some little white buttons (on card) with cute detailing around the center (hard to see in photo), 2) these corally-orange buttons that I kinda really love, 3) these light blue buttons that are shiny on one side and more opaque on the other. I could use these with either side facing up, or 4) these vintage pearl buttons with a shank that might work better with the buttonholes in my top.
I'm leaning towards at least starting out with the coral-orange buttons. I can always change them if I don't like them later. But I'd love to hear what YOU think?
