Knitting? What Knitting?

Seriously.

I haven’t had a chance to blog about knitting… because I haven’t been knitting.

*GASPS!!!*

How could that be? I’m a knitter. Is there a knitting who doesn’t knit?! WHAT’S HAPPENING TO MEEEEEEE~~

It all started since I came back from Korea. I didn’t even knit on the plane ride back from Korea. I just got all tired, didn’t want to do anything, didn’t want to eat anything — > I think I was super depressed.

Since I got back to work, I think it has gotten a bit better, but nothing much has happened in terms of knitting. I am designing a sweater right now so maybe I’ll have more to talk about!

But I didn’t want to leave my blog so cold without no new updates.

So here are some photos to show you that I’m still alive and well:

Husband’s parents came to visit for a week, so we ate out every single night and had very awesome brunches both Saturday and Sunday. This one is at Larchmont Bungalow in LA.

After the brunch, we took our parents to the Farmer’s Market at The Grove.

Which isn’t really “farmer’s market” anymore, but still cute and has awesome snacks and food.

On Sunday, we took them to  Orange Hill Restaurant, which is like 10 minutes away from home but is up on the hill so you get a nice view of Orange County and LA. Not much to see, but it’s very cozy and fun (I mean unlimited champagne with your buffet breakfast?).

They left just this week, early on Monday and the doggies were sad. Even Candy, who just met my mother in law for the first time!

Maybe it just takes time. TIME. to recover from a long trip and such a fulfilling experience with family.

Tour de Fleece Update: Day 16

Tour de Fleece Update: Day 16

Today 7/14 is Day 16 of Tour de Fleece! (And de France too but who cares).

I have this lovely 100% merino 100g skein to report. :)

Very soft, fluffy, such a lovely handspun. I’m so!!! excited about how it’s going to be used.

Tour de Fleece update: plying began

So it seems like my blog is now more about spinning than knitting or designing haha.

So the plying on the gray merino began.

So nice and fluffy-!!!
It’s n-plied and it is around sport weight but definitely has thicker spots.

My sis is visiting in town so things are more hectic in the house. Haven’t seen her in months!  Well, Candy is happy. I wish mom were able to travel this time too, Candy would ‘ve been so happy to see her. .

Well TdF will continue. …

Tour de Fleece Week 1!

Tour de Fleece Week 1!

Tour de Fleece has begun!

This is my first year, really because last year I did join the Ravelry group for Tour de Fleece but was not able to go beyond the first day. I didn’t know how to spin, which was a big problem haha.

This year, I’m spinning beautiful merino top from Paradise Fibers. I only had 4oz of it in my stash but I just ordered 12 more oz of it.

I’m going to spin this and knit something for a friend. This friend is currently working on a crochet evening gown for me! I am super honored. I am so excited, you have no idea. :D
