Friday in LA

Friday morning in LA meant another trip to Santa Monica to visit Wildfiber (we ran out of time yesterday). It was heaven. So much yarn to fondle.

Even though Dad suggested that I had already bought enough yarn yesterday (hey, Dad, I'm a grown up now and I can buy however much yarn I want, and anyway, we didn't limit you to just one electrical store, did we?), I did have to buy a few more skeins.
Here's the total two-day haul...yum...

We sent Dad off with brother-in-law to do some Hollywood-type stuff (brother-in-law is in the business) - checking out studios and inspecting prop vans and prop houses that store acres of any item you care to mention - while sister and I enjoyed a lovely lunch in Culver City. I even got to see the hotel where the cast of the Wizard of Oz stayed, in the the late 1930s (I'm a bit of a fan of that film - I probably know the script off by heart as we had it on LP as kids - yeah, corny, I know).
Home then to prepare for an evening meal with a few of sister's girlfriends. No photos, but I can't tell you what a fabulous evening it was with them. Lots of great food, good wine and laughter. What better last night in LA could there be?
Oh, I will miss it.

Ooooh! I'm glad you managed to get to Wildfibre! I spent a little less than an hour in there and I still didn't see everything there was to see. I wish I could go back!

You'r yarn-haul looks fabulous! :)
