Lisa Auerbach exhibit in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Recently I visited this exhibit with my older son, who wondered if there was a connection with a famous coach.

I knit this last year for my son; I had to anticipate his growth to make it worthwhile. It fit him correctly only after washing and blocking (duh!).

I'll be in Houston for Thanksgiving. Know of 'must see' yarn shops? I'll be close to West University and the Shepard/Kirby area. Thanks!

Blouse in 8-play black silk-rayon with tiny cables

Non-knitting request of anyone in W. Hollywood, CA

Just received news that very close friend will have a shot gun wedding (due to possibility of outlawing same sex marriage in November elections) tomorrow. They're leaving on a honeymoon on Friday.
