i am so lucky to have wonderful friends. b found this orla kiely multi-stem duvet cover online a few weeks ago, and i had been coveting it ever since. of course, it's only available in the UK. i got to the point where i decided it was totally worth the exorbitant shipping costs - and then i found out a friend from london was coming to town, and he would be happy to pick one up for me! the jaffa cakes and tea? total bonus. now we need to find a duvet that'll fit properly inside... any tips other than ordering from amazon.co.uk?
i also made some new friends over the weekend. i decided it was finally time to find a knitting group on the west side of los angeles - i hadn't joined one since moving from pasadena (rose city knitters, i miss you!). so on saturday i headed up the street to the fairview public library and peeked into their community room, where i was greeted by lovely knitterly ladies, tea, and cookies! i will definitely be going back.
while i was there, i swatched for rosamund's cardigan, and sunday i cast on. i suspected i'd need to go down a needle size, and splurged on some wonderful addi turbo #7s (32"). as you may remember, this one's a KAL with malaraky and beigeberry. we're all using very different fibers and emailing each other daily with our progress - during which, we discovered that we're all using a knit picks harmony cable needle that beigeberry gifted us years ago!
i am so looking forward to the long weekend - no plans, lots of yoga and knitting. is it friday yet?
