Fruited Honey Cake from Fred's Bakery L' Shana Tovah means Happy New Year in Hebrew. Today at sundown begins the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashonah. It's traditional to eat sweet food for the celebration to insure that you will have a sweet, successful and happy new year. Apples and honey are a favorite. I picked up a delicious honey cake at Fred's Bakery in Beverlywood this morning on my way to the office to share with my co-workers. Fred had the traditional plain honey cake, ones with nuts and then a surprising one with fruit. It was gobbled up quickly....I barely had time to take a photo!

My BFF, Chick-in-the-Know and High Priestess of Hip, Madgik
, clued me in to the fact that Stephanie collects state dishcloths on her speaking engagements around the country. Hmm? What type of dishcloth could I crochet or knit for The Harlot that would say "California"? An orange, of course!!! I whipped up a crocheted orange slice dishcloth. Then, I found some old orange crate labels online to use as a background for my giftcard. Thanks for the idea, Madge

I was very excited and honored to be asked to introduce Stephanie by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles (thanks, Jeff and Audrey)!
One more reminder for attendees to the Yarn Harlot's lecture on Saturday: When I introduce myself and say, "Hi, my name is Ellen and I'm a yarn-a-holic," I'll need you ALL to yell out, "Hi Ellen!" OK? Thanks and Happy New Year!
