Calendar and F.O.

Co-Worker, Susannah, modeling new scarf

This coming Saturday is my double Stitch 'n Bitch day! In the morning from 10 am to noon I'll be at the Original Farmers Market with our once-a-month-Saturday SnB group...upstairs dining area. We always have a great time. Many of our regular Thursday night WeHo SnBr's join in, as well as a few different crafters. Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the amount of tourists that visit the Farmers Market should be way less than during the summer....thankfully!
In the afternoon, from 3:30-5:30pm, I'll be at the Fairview Branch of the Santa Monica Library for the Fairview Knitters group. I really like the location of this meeting. Fairview Branch is a beautiful mid-20th Century, modern style building with a shaded patio. In the summer, we meet outside and it's always cool and comfortable. Maybe I'll see you at one of the above meet-ups?
My friend, Molly D. from Fairview gave me some beautiful tomato-orange Koigu yarn for my b-day. I whipped up the Floaty Fall Scarf from the current issue of Crochet Today with the Koigu. After blocking, it became even more wispy and floaty. I love it! Thanks, Molly!

Here are a few events happening in the L.A. area this weekend: The Original Long Beach Lobster Festival. The L.A. Greek Festival at St. Sophia's Church. The Sunset Strip Music Festival. The Bauer Pottery Company is having a seconds sale this weekend. The Los Angeles Conservancy holds walking tours every weekend. Check here for the schedule. Esotouric is holding their "Birth of Noir" tour this Saturday.
It's still summer weather in the L.A. area, so we can enjoy the beach, the beautiful sunsets and the warm breezes. The fires in the Angeles National Forest are almost contained, so the air is much cleaner now. Thank you Fire Department!

Love the style and color of the scarf, Ellen.

And, it coordinates so nicely with your blog background!

I am supposed to be moving this weekend, but the Greek Fest and pottery sale are sooooo tempting. Moving can wait till next week, right?
