Los Angeles

During a training break, I turned around and see this beautiful building. This old buildings decor is just amazing and I had to post a picture. The blue sky and green trees make picture even better.
Located in Los Angeles, California Washington BLVD

Saturday Night

Knitters addiction - do you haul your project everywhere? I do. My yarn travels many miles and has a story for every line. What's your story?

"Lowes" is here

I started my second pair of socks, excited! Here is a sneak preview of the beautiful yarn. The name came from my favorite NASCAR driver 48 Jimmie Johnson sponsored by Lowes.

Are you confused?

Do you ever have people ask "What are you crocheting" when knitting or vice verse? Do you give them the look with a smart answer, "Its knitting." I do, so I wanted to share this comic. ;) happy yarning!
