Hello Knitting Friends...

I just recently purchased a super soft awesome hank of Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino from Gather DTLA (see previous blog post) and ended up creating a super cute & fun hat. In fact, I loved knitting it up so much, that I ended up making a second one with some Knit Picks tweed yarn I had in my stash and wrote down the pattern. So, without further ado, here's the pattern...Enjoy!

Hello 2013...

And so another year begins and so does a new super fun secret project that I am working on! Can't really get into all the details, but I'm going to TNNA in Long Beach in a few weeks and hopefully shortly thereafter I can revel a whole lot more. It's gonna be good! Promise. Until then, I'll be keeping a low profile, so sadly not enough time to blog away, but in the meantime...

Here's a quick shout out to Gather DTLA which is a new, very hip and cool knitting nook in a old historic bookstore in downtown Los Angeles. Evi the owner just started this new endeavor late last year and it is beyond cool. The little shop carries a great selection of Blue Sky Alpacas, Spud & Chloƫ, and Rowan yarns all in amazing colors! I popped over for a Sunday stitch social and met up with a few other "Valley" knitters. We all had a great time. Must do that again very soon fo sho!

Gather DTLA is at 453 S Spring Street on the 2nd Floor Mezzanine in Downtown Los Angles. If ever in the hood, stop on by and say hi! Bonus, this place is open late too. So awesome!

PS: And a special thank you to Snowden who gave me a ride to the metro station that night. Thank you girl! xoxo
