The Cardigan Marches On

I'm working on the lower ribbing of my cardigan now!  The gaping holes are where the pocket linings will go.  Once those are knit, then I'll need to sew them to the backsides of the pockets and then there won't be gaping holes anymore.  I'm supposed to go a little bit farther on the lower ribbing, but seeing the sweater on Fifi, I think I'm probably about ready to bind off that lower edge.  It looks like I'll be trying on the sweater today and making some decisions!

I've been looking for buttons for this cardigan, and I've got two possibilities (is it just me, or is possibilities really hard to spell first thing in the morning?), but I'm not sure I'm loving either of them.  I usually use shell or metal buttons, but I don't think that's what I want for this cardigan.  I've actually got plastic buttons that match, but plastic has to be just amazing, and these aren't really hitting amazing.  Does anyone have any ideas?

"Leather" popped into my brain first, then after a little visualizing, crocheted buttons from the sweater yarn became a possibility. Have fun! Oh, or possibly crochet around leather disks??? LOL

I like the idea of glass buttons, or maybe even sparkly ones (http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-Pcs-Clear-Rhinestone-Circle-Flower-Crystal-Buttons-Silver-Tone-Sewing-Craft-/321196437656). This is really such a pretty color; I agree that plastic probably doesn't quite do it.
