Hello SoCal

Well, I'm in Thousand Oaks, California. Wow. I can't believe it. It has been a rather mellow day actually. However, it was rather scary when we got to the PIT terminal to find the USAi*ways check-in line to be 3-4 hours long! It was snaked around the whole upper terminal. Insane. But SuperDad to the rescue! He was his usual assertive self and spoke to a gate agent who helped get my ticket in 20 minutes. Woo! Baggage and security were a breeze. My five hour flight in first class was rather nice. The view was awesome. Then I caught my shuttle to my apartment, took a little tour of Malibu and Thousand Oaks while dropping off other people, and then finally made it to home sweet home for the next few months. I still can't believe I'm here! The apartment is gorgeous. Big walk-in closet, nice kitchen, huge bed, fully furnished. :) But no food. I need to take care of that. So I'm going for a walk to see what I can see. Maybe get some groceries. And then get a good night's sleep. ♥

Spring Showers

After the storm. Posted by Hello

Although the pictures aren't of knitting, I have been knitting. But I'm really tired. So I'll write about it tomorrow. I just wanted an excuse to post macro shots from my spiffy camera. Later. ♥

The prototype. Posted by Hello

My lovely lamb model is showcasing my prototype poncho. I knit a stockinette rectangle and dropped strategic stitches to create the ladder effect and then assembled it in the Knitty Villa fashion. I'm not sure if I would use this construction for a life-sized poncho. I think I might like the "two rectangles sewn together for a v-neck" method. I"m also unsure about the dropped stitches. With this boucle yarn, dropping the stitches back is not the easiest thing in the world. But I like the yarn, even if it is just acrylic and baby yarn. It's like knitting cotton candy! And I think I'll enjoy a Cotton Candy Poncho. :)

In other not so knitting news: I haven't worked much on my Kate Tank. She is languishing in my knitting bag downstairs. I had a lovely time on Memorial Day eating yummy strawberry jello preztel yumminess and delicious pasta salad deliciousness. And there were so many puppies to pet! Have you ever seen a Malamute in person? So pretty, but so big! And powerful. And needs constant attention. I think I need a smaller dog. I really want a Boston Terrier! Those guys are so cute! They are on so many commercials right now. Insurance, allergy meds, flea meds, credit cards... these cuties are promoting them all! I saw one down on the Montour Trail the other day and my dad insists that all terriers are crazy. In fact, he says you may aswell call them Boston Crazies. But I don't mind. I will love my Boston Crazy. ♥
