I'm a Southern CA girl and it's been scarf-wearing weather around here lately so guess what I've been doing late at night? KNITTING! I learned to knit back in 5th grade at St. Brigid's school during the 60's and Sr. Evangeline was the patient soul who taught me how to knit. LOL! I swear, I'm surprised she didn't stick a needle in her eye or ear after dealing with me. LOL!!! She would be so proud of me even if all I dare knit are scarves. One day I'll branch out to bigger or smaller things but for now, I'm sticking to scarves! Which leads us to my shopping sprees. I spent some time over at The Slipt Stitch in El Segundo and the owner Patricia is so sweet. She's the best. Another patient soul I might add. LOL! Oh, and talk about variety. Walking in her shop is like walking in a chocolate candy store! I didn't have my camera to take pics - rats! But I did buy some yarn. And today, my daughter and I hit JoAnns. They were having a yarn sale and I only go there 2 or 3 times a year - serioulsy. They really need to build a JoAnns close to us and instead they're building another TARGET! They're all within 3-5 miles of each other. Go figure. So anyway, here's a bundle of the yarns I bought and I promise to show you what I decide to knit later but you already know I'm knitting scarves. How many scarves do you need to see, huh?!! Can you tell I love color?! LOL!

And the winner is...
I've been out on shopping sprees (more on that later) and I had to do some daughterly errands and by the time I got home it was DARK! I then realized "OMG, THE INCHIE CONTEST!" I immediately shook up the raffle bag, pulled out a name and the name JILL was in front of me! YAY and congratulations to Jill! Jill is a future cool designer (as if she isn't one now!) and had some editors salivating and falling over themselves over her altered jeans a couple years ago at the Art Bar in Santa Ana. Can you imagine a calm and serious editor salivating? LOL! I better shut up. I can't. LOL! Anyway, thanks for playing everyone and sorry I got a late start with the contest. The picture above is another thing you can do with inchies. I was in an ATC swap over the summer and I gathered a few of my inchies and glued them onto ATCs with a black background. I love the way the black makes the colors on the inchies POP, don't you? Click on the photo to get a closer look of the words and images.
