For WWKIPD - World Wide Knit in Public Day (not "what would KIP do"), I went to the West Hollywood Stitch n Bitch group that I attend sporadically, at the Farmers Market on Fairfax (which is 75 years old this year, and that's very old for LA).

Had great fun chatting with people and admiring their knitting. Ellen will be posting pix on her blog shortly here. I wore my new Feb Lady sweater and showed it off just a bit.

I'm almost finished the baby blanket, but it's too big to carry around and has too many ball of yarn trailing it, so I didn't bring it. Instead I brought the baby sweater I started.

One of the other knitters there had brought her 6 month old grandson along, so I had the (brilliant) idea of measuring the baby to see how big a 6 month old actually is. He was very cooperative and didn't mind a bit. :-)

After that I went to the gym, and had a lazy afternoon.
Our good friends K & T came over later, we chatted a bit, then went to a fabulous tapas place, Cobras and Matadors. They have a woodburning oven, and all the food is wonderful. Sweet potato fries, smoky eggplant, baby lambchops, artichoke croquettes, and roasted mushrooms are just some of the yummy things we ate.

From there we walked to the Grove (shopping center with a village street atmosphere which is attached to the Farmers Market mentioned above) and from there headed back to our place for coffee and dessert - delicious baclava from Trader Joe's.

All in all a great day!


  1. Hey, you! Check out my board on TMF. There's a message on it for you.

  2. OMG, your name is Brenda?? And my husband and I went out to the Grove one time and I saw a bunch of knitters there. I actually asked - Is there a yarn shop here???
