Here' s the baby sweater before I wrapped it up (button installed about 2 minutes before i left for the shower!)
Doesn't it look lovely?
A closer-up of the collar and the mismatched buttons
I had two white pearl and 2 pink pearl. I think it looks cute!
The lace detail...oh, so girly!!!
Pattern: Oat Couture "Crocus" Sweater
Yarn: 1.5 skeins of Cotton Fine in "Pink a Boo"
Needles: Size 1 and 2 Susan Bates alumninum straights
I would totally do another Oat Couture project-- easy and well done instructions.
What else did I do this weekend? Older brother #2 turns 30 soon, so we thought we'd throw him a party! (umm, me and 50 people?) It went off without a hitch and here's my favorite PITA (pain the a$$) at age 3.
And, PC and I were off for some "us time" this weekend (about damn time too!) and we turned off the cell phones and walked through Government Center, Quincy Market and then onto the waterfront. Several cows later--- this one is my favorite! That's right people! Mini, live and in person...on her own blog! We went on a whale watch out of the aquarium.
Lunch at the Central Harbor Legal Seafoods (If it's not fresh, it ain't Legal!) and dinner at b.good. Bostonians: check out b.good for some good healthy "fast food"... these guys are great!
What a great weekend! I might need a little bit more sleep tonight...
