May May May!!!

Wow, 2 months passed since the last post I had made. I have been back to Dallas for about a month and I am back to my daily routine lifestyle too. ONLY if I could push myself harder to back to the gym, things will be probably much better. Anyway, it is good to be back and enjoy the Spring. This year, John and I finally conquer the lazy bugs and work on the front yard. We build two little flower bed around two trees with some annual flowers and we are really happy with that. We have more plans for the front yard and weekends seems more exciting than usual because we get to work on the front yard together and honestly I enjoy those quality time. I just wish that Spring will not slip away too fast because Summer is just too unbearable for me.

Before n After

Rec Rev is finally done!!! and I love the outcome so very much. The pattern is already released week ago and it is free with the purchase of the triangular shawl Rev or you can purchase it alone for 4usd. I wish I could have time in the future to make a bigger version of Rec Rev with a skein of beautiful Wollmeise lace and I believe it will be even a prettier shawl.

Besides Rec Rev, a lace shawl that I designed for A Verb For Keeping Warm has published too. Kyri is a large shawl that knitted up with a beautiful skein of AVFKW high twist lace weight yarn. The colorway name is a cute one – Eva, Ana, and all 3 letter names. Kyri is designed when I was having my Malaysia trip. I brought it with me to everywhere when I travel around and I am happy with how the pattern turns out. This shawl is only available for the pro-verbial club subscription at the moment and it will become available to the public at October.

I am currently working on a shawl that planned for a mystery KAL by June. The progress seems promising so far and I believe a test knit can be done real quick before I start the KAL. Mystery KAL is always fun and I can’t wait to play this with some knitters again.

I am going to end this post with some photos that I took at Malaysia and Singapore. I hope you all will enjoy them! πŸ˜€
