Knitting: Nut Hap by Jen Arnall-Culliford in Ashford Tekapo 8-ply. My Kingfisher Hap has been seriously neglected since we left New Zealand. Right before we came back, I was ready to start a second tuck, and the somewhat fiddly stitch separating that that entails was not an appealing travel project! And it was sooo hot in Baltimore last week, that I just couldn’t sit down with it. Now that we’re getting settled in LA, with the joys of central AC, I’m trying to regain some momentum on this. The Haps Are Happening KAL over in the Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Ravelry group ends next Monday. I still have the increasingly unreasonable hope that I might finish in time!
Reading: Los Angeles: Best of LA. It’s been too long since I’ve picked up a proper book – shame on me! But we’re in LA now, and I saw this on the magazine rack at our new local grocery store, and thought perfect! From the looks of it, there are lots of really awesome places to eat and things to do (and places to eat, did I mention that?) here! Now we just need to get a car so we can start exploring! I’ve also, ahem, done a bit of research on yarn shops in LA, and wow, there seem to be a lot of really great ones. Expect reports in the future!
