Vacation in L.A.
Weekend Reading Material
Even though we got back from our long weekend in San Francisco two weeks ago, I'm still in a vacation frame of mind. I want to be on vacation. The weather is great. I've got spring fever. Unfortunately, there's this time-consuming blockage to vacation time called work. So, this weekend we're going on vacation in Los Angeles.
Tonight, we're trying a new-to-us restaurant in Los Angeles. Tomorrow, we're going to the Skirball Museum to see the Bob Dylan exhibit as well as this one and this one. Tomorrow night, we're going to the Dangerous Curve Gallery downtown LA to see an art show by our friend, Stuart Rapeport. Sunday, breakfast with the folks in the Marina. All that running around should give me a vacation-like feeling this weekend.
In my down-time, I'll be reading "Knitting New Mittens & Gloves" by Robin Melanson. It's never too early to start knitting gifts for next Chanukah and Christmas. Here, in Los Angeles, we can really only wear mittens and gloves for a few months out of the year. However, it does get chilly in the early mornings and evenings. This is a lovely book. The patterns range from easy to difficult. I'm most interested in the many wristwarmer patterns. You might remember that I made about 20 pairs of wristwarmers for this past year's holiday gifts. I kept knitting the same pattern over and over. I wish I'd had this book for reference. I definitely would have changed-up my basic pattern. Ooogle a few examples from the book...they're gorgeous!
Have a great weekend!
