Call the Fashion Police!
In Southern California, the weather is kind of odd. We can have really warm 80-90 degree Farenheit weather during the day, but at night it can dip into the chilly 60s. I’d like to use the excuse that I’m still not used to this weirdness because I’m originally from Houston, Texas. However, I can’t and only have my own idiocy to blame. I lived in the San Francisco Bay area for about 4 years and have been in SoCal for about 8 years now. That “not used to” excuse is totally unbelieveable.
Anyway, my knitting group met and sat outside on a patio this week. Knowing that it was a very likely possibility, do you think I prepared for a rapid evening cool-down? Of course not! I only had a thin courduroy jacket on so I got really cold by about 8pm and so I dug through my car and came up with 1 glove, my orange Pfeiffer Falls and a large beach towel (a free promo my hubs got a while back). Isn’t that lovely .com embroidery fancy?
My friends thought I looked funny. So I took some self-portraits of this horrible knitting fashion faux-pas so y’all can have some laughs at my expense.
Torrance Fiber Festival, Part 2
I didn’t really purchase much and really wasn’t planning on purchasing. However, a lovely cone of 8/2 Tencel yarn in a lovely icy blue just kept calling my name. And when I saw that Rebecca got Maria Erlbacher’s book, I knew that I had to go find and get one for myself.
My friend Cindi also posted some of her photos from the festival on Facebook, so I am posting those for your viewing pleasure. Thanks Cindi!!
