I had a great (well, sort of) trip to L.A. Of course we had delays both directions and I for some reason stayed at the LAX Westin Hotel (the sound of the airplanes was deafening) but otherwise a profitable trip. After going way into the valley and getting a bit lost, Ian and I were able to get to Edith Eig’s La Knitterie Parisienne. It was so cool! I think they actually filmed the DIY show “Knit One Purl Two” there, and not only was Edith Eig there but she loved DS3 and I was able to tell her that I was making her feather and fan baby blanket. I got some beautiful Gedifra Fashion Trend yarn and a couple of notions that I ended up not needing during my trip. Oh, and I was in line behind Mrs. Kotter. Whenever I go to L.A. I always have to have a star sighting, and although I would have counted Edith Eig if I had to, Marcia Strassman worked too. Actually, we drove by at least 2 stars if not 4 you might have recognized in Culver City (one was Maury Chaykin), but I couldn’t remember their names at the time.

I didn’t get much knitting done and we didn’t make it to Suss Designs or Jennifer Knits like I was hoping, but it was a fun trip altogether.

NOTE: I will never spend money in Culver City, CA again. I accidentally went through a light at the end of the cycle, got caught on camera and they charged me $350!!!! That’s all the money they are getting from me. It won’t be that hard, since Dinah’s changed their apple pancake and it’s not worth it anymore.

    How fun! I’ve always wanted to visit Edith’s shop (my folks live in LA). Suss Design is a cool store, but she (Suss) isn’t nice at all.
