hmmmm!  

So I hit the shops yesterday to look for a coupla new cardigans for Japan at Easter. I tried a few here and there... Specifically wanted something in red like this...

Or cream, like this...

But guess what I bought?

This strange, candy pink, dolly thing?! I don't know why I did it. For some strange reason, I really like it! Maybe I am becoming an auntie? Had to tweak the photo to try to portray the colour accurately. It's a very strong, candy pink colour. :)

Also tried a dress for fun...

I like it but it wasn't as nice as $159...

Still looking for cream and red big knitted things... Any suggestions?

crazy how radiant that dolly thing is -- it makes the walls a blueish glow!

dress looks good auntie. but without the t-shirt i think?

teehee! bluish glow was due to the colour-tweaking i did to try to achieve the correct candy pink colour! :P

and i was too lazy to remove my tee while trying on the dress. :P

I am a HUGE fan of this Stephanie Japel design

I have made each of them multiple times. They are made of awesome! And you would rock those looks!

The dress, I must admit, not so much. It looks a bit on the frumpy side and you are far from that.

Scarves Scored! Next Cardigan
You go doll!

I find etsy such a pain to navigate, but I don't try on a regular basis for that reason.

Last time I tried though, I will say that I found it odd that someone was selling some Michael Miller fabric.

Re: Scarves Scored! Next Cardigan
i really like etsy! because i find it really hard to find things i like in the stores, which are usually plain, quirky stuff (how's that for an oxymoron?) and i sometimes want to throw in some details or ideas - etsy sellers are always happy to customise! :D

here are my scarves! i hope they come soon...

Becoming an auntie? You're not :p

There is something about it that is quite appealing though I can't quite figure out what it is.

I like the first red cardie - always been a sucker for red.

:D

ps: ooooh Japan!!

yes, i really wanted to get the red cardi but it didn't sit quite right on the arms for me...

the candy pink still isn't very accurate in the picture... if you can see the actual colour, i think you'll like it even better! maybe i'll take a picture in sunlight tomorrow...

ps. i'm excited!
