from this book i attacked the Greenfield Cardigan which has pretty leaf detailing (the buttons i used can be found here)

it was designed by Melissa LaBarre, she is also the designer of the Tiny Tea Leaves Cardi that i knit for my daughter (so i guess you could say i've become a fan of Melissa LaBarre's knitwear)
