SWEET SWEATER

Eddie Bauer hat
L.L.Bean Kid's sweater
Revlon Matte lipstick in Wine Not


I could barely believe mine eyes when a late night eBay search turned up the very sweater I had hemmed and hawed over and eventually missed out on scoring last November. LLBean kids, size Large, 50% wool 50% acrylic 100% dreamy. I'm still clinging to the hope that they'll stock it again this year, since if memory serves it comes in navy and grey as well. Bean, baby, Bean!

P.S. I wrote a sweater joke:
Q: What did the traffic cop say to the old lady he saw knitting a sweater while driving?
A: Pullover!

Aaahhahaha! Good joke, girl!

I love your lipstick! I think that colour would look pretty severe on me but I really enjoy it on you.

this is so great, I'm jealous you can wear kids' sizes!!! I did in high school but these days the ladies in the front just won't have it ;(. Being stuck in MN, where we already need sweaters again made me sad until I saw you rocking dark lips and remembered some of the perks of fall.

So good with that colour of lipstick. I love cable knit jumpers. :)

That is a delightful jumper. I'm knitting my own cabled jumper at the moment, maybe I'll have it ready by next winter...

Whooa, I wish I had those skills! I was determined to knit my first sweater last winter and, well...it didn't happen. Maybe this year?? I think the biggest hurdle might just be picking out what yarn to use. I want it allll heheh!

reminds me of the movie dumb and dumber, the cop says "pullover!" and he touches his sweater and says "no it's a cardigan, but thanks for noticing!"
