Needing Buttons and help

What color buttons should I use for my wonderfully soft and warm February lady Sweater. The color is in the pictures from the last post and it is all knit up, but it has no buttons. Any advice?
light brown? Light blue? something else?

I am feeling silly to ask...but this one is confounding me. I'll probably wear it mostly with jeans and black skirts, and will wear black shirts and brown ones under it.

Knitting Olympics

We've been watching the Olympics. It's been terrific.

Did you know Hannah Kearney was a knitter? She just won the Gold medal in Freestyle mogul skiing on Sat night. It was an amazing run and she was vindicated after failing to qualify for the finals in Torino in 2006, although she had been the favorite to win. The picture at right is from NBC, (c) NBC Sports / USOC.

She is so genuine and sweet in her interviews and watching her get the medal in the ceremony last night was fun, too.

Me, I am finishing my February Lady Sweater for my own Knitting Olympics, and then I plan to make another Tee before the Olympics officially closes in two weeks.
I don't want to hear how overzealous that plan is. So don't tell me.

Here's a sample of the four baby bibs I've made lately:
And now I have a question for you. If you were going to finish the bib below, would you use the pocket....or not? Been reading.... lots! The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. I didn't know it would end up being a proponent on Socialism. It was a perfect foil for another book I recently read, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, a proponent of Capitalism. It would have been very interesting to put them in a room and watch the sparks fly! See my current list for books read so far in 2010.

Olympian knitting continue!
