MY LIFE WITH A 10 YEAR OLD AND MY OBSESSIONS....SEWING and KNITTING!

Thursday, September 22, 2005

Since you asked.......

The only 2 local yarn shops that I know of are L'Atelier in Riviera Village in Redondo Beach, and Concepts in Yarn and Needlepoint in Hillside Village, on Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance. I know there is a shop, In Stitches, in Manhattan Beach, and Let's Knit Yarn Shop in Gardena, but I have not been to either one, as that is a little far for us. (although not as far as driving to Santa Monica for Wild Fiber!) There are a couple in Long Beach that I'd like to visit, Alamitos Bay Yarn Co., and Knitropolis.

And also for anyone who is interested - The Southern California Handweavers Guild "Weaving and Spinning Show and Sale" is Sunday, November 6 at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center.

I've noticed on all the Southern California blogs mention of our wild weather earlier this week. It really is a big event when we have thunder and lightning! (we're such wusses!) Now today it's 93 degrees at my house!

I've been to Alamitos Bay Yarn Co and it's great. Definitly worth the trip.

I've been to ABYC and it's pretty nice. Though I was spoiled by La Knitterie Parisienne early on. It takes a lot to impress me anymore.

I'll see you at the shindig on Nov. 6!
