A beautiful Sunday

Today was a beautiful day--sunny and warm with a nice breeze.

The morning started with plying Daughter of the Sea:

Then we spent the afternoon at the Picchetti Winery in Cupertino listening to jazz outside:

We had a table of knitters and friends who spent the afternoon visiting, making loops with yarn, and enjoying the music. I finished the BSJ with i-cord buttons and wove in all the ends. It's ready to be mailed to baby Evelyn:

BSJ mods--
Made the neck opening a little bigger by binding off 2 additional sts at the beg of those 2 rows. For the buttonbands, I worked 3 ridges then launched into a 3 st i-cord edging adding buttonholes where the i-cord meets the sweater. Edged the cuffs with 3 st i-cord and picked up sts and made 3 st i-cord knotted buttons.

Jazz and an FO--it was an enjoyable afternoon. But next time (July 11), I'll put on sunscreen. Ouchie!

  • Those "buttons" were definitely the way to go. Good job!

  • Productive *and* lazy - pretty much the best kind of summer Sunday. The fantastic weather didn't hurt any, either. It was great to share the day with you.
