I finished this little set and instead of doing buttons and buttonholes, I opted for the attached I-Cord and I really like the effect. It was so easy to do, I will definitely be doing it again. This was knit with Sirdar Snuggly Bamboo, this yarn is glorious and oh so soft. It's 80% bamboo and 20% wool. The booties are from a pattern by MadelineTosh, Dainty Booties. They are great to knit, and oh so easy, no stitches to pick up.
