it's june!

Oh my god, how is it June already? This year is flying by. The Ingenue sweater, not so much - I finished the body (finally!) and am making my way through the first sleeve now. In a perfect world I'd be knitting a lot faster, but, I work all the freakin' time and type like a maniac for most of it, which means I can't knit in the rare free time I do have, or my arms would actually fall off. 

Speaking of work, I went to NYC for one last work trip, where I ate cheese cake and was too busy to do much else:

mmm, cheesecake...

... and then came back to LA, where I had one glorious day off and ate this: 

... because I was feeling nostalgic for New York. Magnolia cupcakes in LA = proof that California really is the best state now. 

I also bought yarn for the first time in months! Having vowed to buy no new yarn at the start of this year, I figured six months was a respectable amount of time to wait before venturing into one of LA's many awesome yarn shops. They're not particularly summery colors and it's rapidly getting too hot to imagine being near wool, but, yay nonetheless! 


  1. If you have to break your yarn diet, Madtosh is the perfect yarn to do it with. Such beautiful colors too. Don't stress yourself out about not knitting enough, knitting is for fun!

  2. I agree with Pumpkin ... all yarn diets should be broken with Madtosh! And summery or not, I love the colors you chose. Enjoy.

  3. I love the color of your Ingenue! And the yarn you bought is gorgeous... yay for yarn! :)

  4. Six months in indeed plenty of time to have to wait to buy yarn. What beauties you bought. I love NYC it is amazing. Love your pic, especially the cheesecake. :)

  5. Ok the deserts look yummy!
    Is the sweater finished? You were almost there.
