all's well

dove under my desk around 11:45AM today to avoid potentially falling objects from the lovely 5.4 quake. my office is on the 15th floor and the building's on rollers so it was quite a ride! luckily the house, kitty, and bunnies seem totally fine. let's not do that again any time soon!

back to it

having a slow start this morning due to a late (for me!) night spent with two lovely ladies on abbott kinney. have mentioned i love this place?

so. before the whole moving process began, i cast on for pam allen's modern lace henley.


boy. i love me some lace, but the waist shaping decreases in this sucker were driving me crazy! rip, reknit. rip, reknit. the FOs i've seen are so cute, i didn't want to give up entirely. so.


mmm, in the round. much better! (even though ravelry tells me otherwise, i'm nervous that i'm not going to have enough yarn. keep those fingers crossed when not otherwise knitting!)

think i'll bike to malibu today and spend some time on the beach. happy sunday!

a whole other planet

for the past four weeks, i've done little besides go to work and prepare for this:

venice beach

that's a view of the beach early in the morning before the marine layer's burned off. a block and a half from our new house.

venice - our new home

and THAT's our new neighborhood. we finally moved on friday. the whole ordeal was less than easy but we're finally here, all the shelves are up, and we now just need to figure out where to hang the pictures. i'm holding back photos of the interior until we've got things just right, but until then, here's a sneak peek at the house next door:

new view

yeah. i think i'm going to like this place.
