I've already queued this cute top with a button band. I'm going to get some Knit Picks CotLin in a chocolate brown. I think it will make the buttons look wonderful. I also read somewhere that brown is the new black.
Thanks for all your input on my "What Was I Thinking" knitting. I'm not in love with the yarn and based on all your sage advice I'm donating the top to charity. Hopefully someone will love it.
