I'm on a button hunt.

I actually finished the sweater I've been making for the last year. WOO HOO! And it totally fits. But it needs eight good-sized buttons (maybe 1.5") and I need advice. I don't want to post a picture because I need totally organic suggestions.

So imagine a long winter-white sweater vest with large cables and a ribbed collar/hem/front opening. What color are the buttons? What sort of texture? What shape? Pretend that there are no limitations, just imagine the ideal buttons. And then tell me where I might be able to get them.

I'm picturing either darkish wood buttons, or something in an antiquey gold. No idea where you can get them. Sorry!

Hey T.O.!!! I tend to find some pretty bitchin buttons at Hunt & Gather on 50th and Xerxes. I am also thinking dark brown wood. Their inventory changes quite a bit, but I find funky stuff there and it's fun!
Thinking of you and would love to see u in 2011!
