Disco Ball Necklace

Shirt: from some 2nd hand store in LA but I can't remember where!
Necklace: from a giveaway on Selective Potential's blog
Where: in the kitchen at my office

One of my co-workers took these pictures for me today while we were on our lunch break. We usually spend our lunch breaks knitting, which is awesome because my co-worker is the best knitter and she always helps me when I make a mistake (which is often). I get teased a lot for knitting but I seriously love to knit. It's really not just for grandmas - there are so many trendy knitting patterns from designers! Knitting was trendy a few years ago among celebrities and other hip people in LA and I wish that was still the case because there were so many more cool knitting stores. One of my friends went to a knitting store to get me a birthday present and the worker kept showing her things that a grandma would be interested in and my friend was like "uhh no, I don't think that she would like any of those things, they are all for older women". The worker was surprised that she had a friend in her 20s that knitted. Ha!

My favorite part about knitting is that I can make something truly amazing from a few balls of yarn and some pointy sticks. Also, unlike sewing if you make a mistake it is sooo much easier to just take out some stitches and fix the mistake. For me that is a BIG plus because I tend to make a lot of mistakes because I am usually multi-tasking at work and forget a few stitches in a pattern. The only downside is that I get really bad pains in my right arm after a long day of knitting at work so I often have to take long breaks in between projects.

I love how sparkly this necklace is, it was distracting me all day! I won the necklace in a blog giveaway from one of my favorite blogs, Selective Potential. You can tell that she spends a lot of time on her blog and she that seems really genuine and friendly. AND she is super pretty!
