Yep, been working all week….scarcity of postings!

My mom gets to visit me for a few days in June….I’ll get an in-progress critique of Mom’s Angora — trust me, there’s no way I’ll be able to not show her (my issues, not hers!). I’m excited she gets to visit because initially I thought she wasn’t going to be able to this year. Anyway, I’m planning on a visit to the Vintage Tea Leaf for afternoon tea, as well as a beach day with lunch at Martha’s Grill (22nd St & the Strand in Hermosa Beach, right next to the beach).

I bought Starmore’s Fishermen’s Sweaters (again! — had bought a hardback copy on, didn’t think to ask if it came from a smoking home (something I’m diligent about on eBay, never had a problem with sellers before so it’d never come up) and it had so I had to send it back). Anyway, my local Border’s has had the softback for the longest time, and I got a 25% off any item coupon via email so decided to go ahead and buy it.

I’ve gotten so many good comments on my Zelda Grand bag (mostly from nonknitters, which then gives me the excuse to pull out my knitting and show it off — of course, I’d show it off to knitters as well!). I’ll post a pic at some point but it’s the olive floral design with black lining and turquoise and two shades of green velvet on an offwhite cotton base. Black velvet handles.
