Not much happening on the knitting front - still knitting away on a scarf for that ravelry scarf exchange project - hoping to get it done tonight actually :) - I'm planning some more knitting related stuff soon... but did get a good photo of Willow (left) and Winky (right) [in case there's any confusion which cat might have been named winky! HA!] -yes, she has only one eye... they don't normally lay near each other like this - so it was a rare kitty love moment!
Last night we went to my Sister in law's house and went door to door with her 2 kids - it was a LOT of fun - carrying around a tiny baby (she's just over 1 year old) and watching the older sis (I think she's 7 or 8) go door to door. it was an early night - (we were home by 9pm) and I went quickly to bed - I was exhausted! It wasn't until this morning that I even thought about the 400,000+ people partying in West Hollywood - OMG - the litter and mess that's still around even AFTER they did the major cleanup! - Part of me likes the idea of dressing up - and the "day after" every year, I vow that next year I'll do something crazy and fun...
Here's a random "sunset" photo driving down the 118 near my house - I thought the sky was beautiful - aah, nothing more responsible than flying down the freeway at 70-80 mph snaping photos of the sunset... I noticed a few moments later that another guy was trying to take a photo of the same sunset with his cellphone... I guess I'm not the only nutcase in CA!
Not much else is going on - I am thinking though that since I have so much yarn, I won't be buying yarn till the new year - remember, I have over 1000 balls of yarn in my stash.... clearly too much! -and since I have so many projects I already want to do, I'm focusing on getting some of those completed before moving on...
I have a funny story to share... I got an email yesterday from the office of a vendor we use at my business - it went something like this:
I found your blog online :)
I think its you anyway… design consultant in LA
with the same name as you..?
If it is, you are totally talented! How much
would you charge me to make a pretty fuzzy scarf?
If its not you.. sorry,
you probably think I’m crazy lol :)
I responded and told her yes, it's my blog - and of course I'll make her a scarf - so it's on my list of things to do- and I hope she's reading my blog on a regular basis now... (HI sweetie!) - after our exchange I started to think... did you google my name? I was kind of curious.... but didn't ask her... and it's sort of flattering -
