blocking & finishing on a deadline, butttons anyone????

I am sooooooo close to completing.

I just cast off the fronts at the top collar and I blocked it. I only sprayed it with water instead of washing the fronts, since I am short on time and have the rest of the sweater blocked already.

I am hoping to stitch the sweater together tonight, and crochet the edges and then I can take it on my trip to DC when I leave on Tuesday night.

I have to give a speech and in order to calm down, I made a goal for myself to knit this sweater to wear. I should be writing my speech but this is so much more fun.

So what type buttons have folks used please? I am going to go button shopping soon. thanks, will post photo when done.......

Lori, I used some 3/4 inch silver metal ones from Wal-Mart. My friend knit the same sweater and used some slightly distressed wooden ones, but I think that you could get away with anything that looked good on your yarn :)
