Another weekend in Los Angeles! Today the boyfriend and I went hiking in Griffith Park. It was nice and hot, but in the distance loomed fog. I popped on a basic beanie since my hair was looking a little scary. It is made from a seed stitch using Caron Simply Soft.
It didn’t pin to my Pintrest board!?!
I spent all of this time searching for the perfect lacy pattern and I could not figure out where I got it from. *Sad Face* Randomly I had saved it to my desktop, but I didn’t want to resort to recreating the wheel quite just yet.
(Isn’t it divine?)
Well thank you Google!
I remembered from some random reality show I was watching that they used Google Image Search to find things on the internet with just a picture. Well with one click and drop in the box later I found my pattern! Yay! I guess all this living near tech-oriented people is paying off.

Best Wishes tomorrow Mr. and Mrs. Tatum!
Handmade coasters with wooden box by KnitsbyWhit!
So my friend has a Chau Chau aka the furriest dog ever!
(Not her dog)
She was telling me this weekend that someone propositioned her to buy her dog’s fur. Why I asked? Well the person wanted to spin the fur into yarn. What?!? I had to investigate. Further searches lead to all the photos below. Oh the things people make.
This weekend was the annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park. I am not necessarily a bluegrass fan, but who can say no to sun, fun, and wine!
Check out Steve Martin’s band!
I also started some projects that I should be finishing up this week.
My final square in the Dogwood blanket from Tin Can knits.
I started on the DIY Byzantine Chain Bracelet featured on Craftgawker. I plan on adding buttons to it to change up the design.
I also am working on the knitted coasters from Craftgawker. My friend is getting married this weekend so all of the coasters together will spell out their name.
I am really loving the site Craftgawker. Actually it has replaced my obsession for Pintrest. Here are the top 5 things I hope to create!
1) Knit Letter Tile Coasters from Craftfoxes
These would make great holiday gifts or wedding gifts!
2) Monogramed cutting board from Ruffled
This project looks a little intimidating, but if done right would look stellar for any special occasion.
3) A Photo and Floral Centerpiece from Katalina Jewlery
Displaying pictures in a semi unconventional way? Yes please! I am thinking centerpieces at a birthday party.
4) Bitty Baby Booties from Small + Friendly
These are so cute they are beyond words!
5) Sumo Wrestler Bowling Pins from Pink Stripey Socks
Kids would get a laugh playing with these…and so would adults probably.
