i want this kind of weekend over and over again
it was filled – just filled to the brim. there were a few key things missing, but still, i feel terribly lucky to have such good friends and to continue to meet and get to know better super interesting people.
saturday i hung out with francesca, my spinning guild buddy. she’s awesome. we went over to little tokyo, shopped around kinokuniya and both picked up some craftsy books, then hit the small but delicious (and very nicely priced) famer’s market that’s open in the plaza-area on saturdays. after that, we went back to her place and conducted a photo and video shoot for her unique tubular cast-on that uses no waste yarn – it’s fabulous! take a look at her tutorial, with images, pics, and video, she makes it easy to understand what’s going on.
on sunday, i headed over to knit cafe and hung out with julia, who i’d only met once before, but it was just pretty obvious that we had just hit it off, yay.
but. in the meantime, check out my deciduous top – so much fun to knit, though some of my stitches are wonky right now, hm. plus, i finally get the whole calmer obsession, that yarn truly is a joy to knit with. anyhow, can’t wait to try it on. i’ve been missing my knitting mojo, but it’s back in full force it seems.
hope yours was equally satisfying ~ ~
p.s. oh yeah, finally i got up my madli’s shawl pics and project info – i finished it in may (!) and have been using it practically non-stop at work and on airplanes. i’m looking pretty unhappy in that foto to the right, but it was taken in may, when i was in fact fairly unhappy. so glad it’s july and not may anymore.
