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…?
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!

I already posted this on my Instagram (@wanabelle100) but here is my spakalette project as the Knitmoregirls called it.
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!
