On our drive home through LA I suggested a lunch stop at Lake Forest Blvd.....the timing was right, but I may not have mentioned that there was also a yarn store at that exit. The Yarn Lady, a very well stocked yarn store just happened to be right at the intersection where we stopped.
They have moved in the past few years and the new locations has both a nearby Hobby store and a coffee shop, both good for eliciting a husbands patience with yarn shopping.
I've been wanting a pretty rectangular shawl and one that would be fun to knit, but wouldn't engage my brain more then necessary (I have the Aran baby cardigan for that kind of knitting) This one is called Joyful Shawl by Laura Rosenbaum and comes in a kit offered by the Yarn Lady. It was inexpensive, included the beautiful hot pink mohair, the colorful Joy yarn and directions. There is a small ruffle at either end.
I love the color
I'm sure it will be the perfect summer accessory with all white or all black clothes and that beautiful pop of color. On size 10 needles it is bound to be a quick knit.
I'm fully recovered from the migraine episode, have cleaned the house, and am ready to dig into the list of things awaiting my attention.
