It's the simple things

Finally finished this little sweater set. Made from Berroco Weekend DK, a nice cotton blend. I fell in love with the name of the yarn color, Clothesline (yeah, doesn't take much for The yarn is a bit splitty but love how it knit and it's easy care. Now comes the hard part, buttons. Thought I had 3 red buttons (that's what I get for not checking in the first place) sadly I have 2 and I made 3 buttonholes so it could button over the chest of baby. I have a huge plastic container full of buttons with very few red ones.
Now you may think it's easy to find nice red buttons but we live in a rural area with a very tiny fabric store and walmart. Could not find red buttons that are suitable. Looks like a trip out of town is on the schedule ;)
                       I had enough yarn left to make a matching hat. I'm lovin' the colors of this set.
As a friend said, looks like March's idea of going out like a lamb means white, fluffy, soft snow. It's not much but it's slick on the mountains(according to the hubby).'s about the simple things, like red buttons and the color name of a yarn ;)
