Buttons From France

At Christmas, both Isa and Sophie were kind enough to send buttons all the way from France.
I love buttons. The right button enhances a garment. And a garment should be good enough to do justice to a beautiful button!
This little cotton cardi has been languishing, button-less, in an upstairs drawer since early summer. Now, thanks to Isa, it has finally been completed. I love the look.

Pattern: Garter Yoke Baby Cardi
Designer: Jennifer Hoel
Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Sport
Colour: Ivory
Needles: Circular, 3.5 mm

I don't usually knit with cotton. I prefer wool as it has more memory and keeps its shape so much better. But I couldn't resist experimenting with this off white, ever-so-soft cotton yarn.
