My trip to LA photos are finally edited and posted up in my flickr. Right after I got back my answer to all the "how was it?" questions was something along the lines of - I love my friends, shopping is awesome but I will never, ever live there again. This is still true but I would like to say - I had fun. It was awesome. My friends in L.A are great. Many thanks to those of you who saved me from my early rising mornings and took me on adventures. Being at the mercy of others with no car is a bit of a pain in the ass but, I sorted it out.

I also bought a million things for my shop that I have been slowly adding day by day. Also - I am going to be making jewlery!! Yay!

A couple photos of course : 1. Dance party at The Bar on Bronson. 2. My best friend Katie has never loved anything more than she loves this cat (well maybe she has but, she really loves her cat Prince). 3. Obligatory "I'm on the beach with palm tree's" shot of myself. 4. The littlest jellybean entertaining herself in the sand in Venice.

I have a couple FO's as well! Just full of photos today -

Lady Arms:
Yarn : 2 balls Frog Tree Merino Worsted in black
Needles : US 5 dpns
Pattern : Improvised - I actually kept track of how I made this pattern - I think I may get some better photos and write it out - post it up on the ole' Rav.

Next up is Missoni Inspired Cowl :
Yarn: 3 balls RY Classic yarns - Bamboo Soft in taupe
Needles : US 6 cic 36" needle

It was a nightmare to knit with such small needles. Same thing, over and over and over and over... I was glad to be finished. I was hoping it would be a little wider but, it's good enough. I like it. I still need to weave in the ends.

I am trying to use the yarn in my stash before I go buying new yarn so I have no sweaters/tops in my near future but, can someone reccomend me something cool to make with 215-240 yds of cotton yarn?? I am stumped.


My best friend started her own etsy shop!! Hand made awesome jewlery!!
