The Stitchuation

December 10, 2012

Filed Under : MY LIFE

This Saturday, I taught a little knitting class with my good friend Michelle.  Who, me?  A knitting class?  Teaching?  IT HAPPENED.

We met some really awesome ladies, drank delicious wine, and knit our faces off.  What more could you ask for in a Saturday afternoon?  We even created a little knitting group called “The Stitchuation” and I see only good/amazing things for our knitting future.

Knitting lessons

This weekend, my cousin Kayla gave me and 2 of my cousins (Kels & Jess) knitting lessons!  Not only did she teach us the basics, but we also had a super fun time.  I love my family so much!  I {of course} chose a mustard-colored yarn and even though my progress (above) looks kind of crappy, I think I’m finally getting the hang of it.  I will definitely show you the completed piece (circle scarf) as soon as I finish.  Thanks so much Kayla!

If you’re interested in learning how to knit and don’t have a super crafty family member, I would try this or these tutorials.  So much fun!



*And here’s Kayla workin’ that yarn like a professional.  She’s so good!

Friday Love List

October 21, 2011


friday love list

Happy Friday!!  This week has seen a drastic change in Los Angeles weather.  LOVING.  IT.  Cooler temps mean warmer clothes and layers, pumpkin-flavored desserts, scarves and oversized sweaters, seasonal soup recipes…I could go on and on!  It’s my favorite time of the year so I’m enjoying every minute of it.  Also, today is one of my best friends’ birthdays!  Happy birthday Sarah Jayne, sending so much love all the way across the United States.  In addition to Sarita’s birthday, here are a few things I’m loving this week:

  • Can you believe the J. Crew discount right now??  25% off orders of $150+ through Sunday.  These kind of discounts come around once in a lifetime.  I couldn’t be more excited!
  • The newly launched Besotted Brand paper goods and stamps are as beautiful as they are chic.  Can’t wait to add a few sweet things to my ever growing stationary collection.
  • This chocolate chip cookie recipe (found on Cup of Jo) looks BEYOND delicious.  Need to test drive them immediately.
  • My love for delicate rings is as strong as ever and these Gabriela Artigas rings could not possibly be more gorgeous.
  • This weekend, my cousin Kayla is teaching me how to knit.  I’ve been dying to learn, but is knitting really hard??  I’ve literally never done it before so this will be a very new experience for me.  Excited!

Have a wonderful & relaxing weekend, lovelies.
