What Have You Done?

I didn't do much knitting today. Just work on Lazy Daisy at lunch (it's about 24" now, almost done!) and rip out my second try of the Cheerleader's Endpaper Mitts (they were knit perfectly fine, thanks, but I was smart enough to have her try them on and her hands are not as teeny as previously reported). After work I took Mommy to airport. Sigh. Too much togetherness followed by too long of a separation. Sucks. The I came home and started building the cubbyhole system she bought me yesterday. My room is so close to becoming organized, it's scary! Oh, and most importantly, I finished seaming Twist & Shout! And it fits! Woo hoo!!!! All that remains is to pick up stitches and knit the collar then add the amazing button I bought for it. So no pictures to day but I'll leave you with this:

I couldn't figure out which button would be best, and finally I settled on "Yellow 4-hole w/rim"

Do you think I made the right choice or should I have gone w/o rim?
