Let me show you my absolutely perfect buttons! The buttons, shown here on the swatch, foreshadow a beautiful design detail suggested by Kathy Zimmerman: I'm going to put the buttons and the buttonholes in the middle of the first cable. (This photo simulates what the sweater will look like when buttoned.) Imagine my delight when I stumbled on these oval celtic buttons at Kathy's store. She only had a few but I was able to find the rest I needed online.

Another Early Bird update
Whew! Last night I finished the second sleeve from my beauteous Early Bird Special Cardigan. I gave both sleeves a bath this morning and now they're napping the afternoon away on blocking boards.
