Last month, the Kiwi group on Ravelry organized a fiber swap! This is what I got! I love the cute crochet amigurumi, and the smart little gauge ruler. And the fiber! Looks super yummy! It’s blue faced leiscester, 3.5oz. I can’t wait to spin it into socks. :)
I’m commuting to LA everyday for work these days. It’s about an hour on the Metrolink train, and since my work lets me come in whenever I want, I choose to take the earliest train possible and work 8 hours, and leave work by 3pm. I get on the M601 train to LA and M602 back to Irvine so HOLLA if you see a young knitter on the train, usually working on a sock since I’ve found that working with a pair of metal Addi circular needles in size 8 can seem a bit threatening in a very crowded train…. Size 1 or 2 magic loop on a sock is a much less imposing project..
I love my job! There’s a guy (single, if you’re interested) who sits next me and 2 other married women, and according to him, our conversations sound like something straight out of Joy Luck Club. Isn’t that awesome? Perhaps we are all sharing too much…? :P
Anyhow! I’ve been working really hard since Day 1 of the new year, and am planning several designs. One big collection I’m working on right now is a collection based on Fifty Shades Trilogy.
They are badly written (even the names were pretty… bad) books, with lovable characters with so much potentials.. I love the characters in the books, and quite honestly, I was thinking about what they would be wearing the whole time, if the books were to be made into a movie.
I’m also planning some kidswear, some shawls… and of course more sweaters. I love knitting sweaters.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
While Lady Sybil socks are being tested, I’m designing a new shawl.
If you’re interested in testing either the socks or shawl pattern, let me know!
