Cotton Candy went outdoors...

Last Tuesday was a holiday for us and it was an unusual free time for DH from his recent work schedule. I was excited as we were able to go out as a family and our plan was to go biking with the boys. Unfortunately, it rained all day with ocassional breaks, so no biking only a lunch and a visit to a park. That didn't stop my enthusiasm,why? I had planned to take my newest Candy Cotton outdoors for a photo session. I worked hard the night before with the mending and I sew in the buttons next morning. I thought, i would have time to go to downtown in the morning to check for some buttons (ah, i often plan too many things in an unreasonable schedule!) . As time was short, i had to look in my button collection ( only a few ones) and found some purple buttons that i've bought in Korea.

They were going to be temporaly ones but i kind like them on this cardi. Did you notice the
uneven buttons spacing? I had originally planned to add a collar to this cardi but left over yarn was not sufficient, thus i had to make the first button hole higher. Redoing the front border would mean undoing the mending too. I opted for not minding the uneven spacing.

It is not my favorite one but i am very satisfied with the result in terms of fitting, mending and that i was able to add the front border nicely. I think, i've regained my confidence back.... :)
Proof of rain? Check my umbrella handle!

Did you notice the pink colourway collar? Yeah, the cardi looks a bit puffy because i was
wearing my diamond sweater underneath of it.

Lots of pictures this time! It was a way to compensate for the quick finishing up, the rain and the entrance fee to this park! :D BTW, just one more photo! It's not everyday that i have the chance to take my FOs outdoors and have handy photographers!;)

I am working in a new project that i'll share on my next post. I can tell you that it's a design from Winter World knitting and it's purpleish! Have a great knitting weekend!

Love the popping leaves! Very pretty!!
I really, really like the colour of your diamond sweater too.

I think it is very lovely despite what you said about the buttonholes. All projects have some small imperfections like that ... because they are handmade! But it is very lovely and you wear it well. You certainly know what looks good on you.

Your cardi looks so cozy and warm! That Jaeger yarn you used for it appears to achieve such a nice, soft-looking fabric. And your version of the cardi seems to have a more modern, fitted look-- not like the boxier fit as you showed us in the magazine.

Thanks for sharing all those lovely pictures, Mimi. Love, love your recent FOs, especially the Topaz Cardi. Just Gorgeous!

Your Cotton Candy cardi is gorgeous!! It looks just wonderful on you and both the color and design suit you so well. I love the location of your photo shoot, too... so picturesque and lovely! Your diamond sweater is beautiful, too- such a pretty colorway you chose. Fantastic work! Take care and have a great weekend, Mimi! :-)

The sweaters fit you so well, and they match the flowers in the back. :)

Candy pink is an appropriate name, the cardigan looks light and soft, like pink cotton candy floss. It looks and fits so well, you always do such a good job with your knitting. What a good idea to make it big enough to wear over your sweaters.

The pattern is lovely and it suit you very much.

It's so gorgeous and lovely colour as well.

They are both beautiful projects... oh, now you've made me wanna pick up my Japanese mags and start a new project!

Toni said...

I can't believe it's done already!! It's wonderful--keep the buttons. Also, I didn't notice the spacing until you mentioned it and now that's all I see...not. ;D Is the sweater really warm?

The sweater is beautiful and it looks so nice with the diamond turtle neck. Wear it proudly. It looks great on you.
Congrats.
Wendy
