Green day

After everything involved in Saturday's ride, I was thankful for nothing-much-planned on Sunday. Everyone else had things to do, leaving me to putz and putter as I wished. As it rained most of the day, sometimes hard, and it could easily have turned into an impromptu Pajama Day, but I had to run to the store for a few things. Thankfully, not when it was raining too hard!

It was as good a day as any to get this little June sweater sewn up! Sewing sort of kills my wrist. It's been ages since I cross-stitched anything and I wonder whether I could even do it for long. It was just attaching two tiny little sleeves and sewing up the side/sleeve seams, but I had to take some breaks. It's all over now 'cept for the buttons. I was thinking orange, Ali suggested yellow... we'll see!

By evening, the rain had subsided enough so that Rusty could man the grill while I roasted some asparagus in the oven a la Ina Garten (we love her!). The only thing I would have done differently was to have had the correct amount of asparagus. It was perfectly delicious, there just should have been MORE deliciousness. Yum. Maddy & Kate joined us for dinner; Ali & Kevin were just in time for dessert -- strawberry shortcake! Yum (again)!

What an adorable sweater. This is your hand painted yarn from project spectrum, isn't it? I'm amazed at everything you accomplish. Congratulations on the bike race, too. I looked up the asparagus recipe. Sounds easy and yummy. Thanks for the recipe.
You are an amazing woman!

I love the sweater and I think orange buttons would be adorable. And asparagus roasted in the oven is wonderful. Yummmmm!

I love Ina's roasted asparagus recipe. (I think there's never "enough," though. . .) And I adore the little sweater. So very cute. (Orange buttons!)

Your day sounds lovely! The food sounds lovely! Roasted asparagus is the best...we wrap a few springs in prosciutto and roast, too. The sweater is stunning! Love the way the colors play through it. The right yellow buttons could be fun, but orange would be great!

What an adorable sweater! That asparagus looks delicious.

Gorgeous sweater! (Can you use that adjective with a baby sweater? I hope so!) Orange buttons would be great. You could also mix it up and do one each: orange, yellow, blue, green. But unless you have them in your stash, that can prove to be an expensive option.

I love your little sweater. The bright green is a not-often seen color for baby items.

Beautiful picture too.

Your photography is stunning. I see one orange button toward the top (or on top) and the rest black. Very cute!

Adorable sweater - I just love slip stitch with handpaint yarns. Where *did* you get the green Chibi case - I've never seen that color. The asparagus looks fantastic - maybe next year I'll finally get a new bed going ... sigh

Hooray for PAJAMAS!

Ever since I saw Ina's roasted asparagus, there has been no turning back.
Cute little sweater, Vicki.
