At long last we have some sun here -- too much, almost. It's been in the high 90's for days.

But sun means good light for photos. Here is the shirt I finished a couple of weeks ago. I'm calling it "Gelato" because the colors remind me of that yummy ice cream.
I'll post a pattern in a couple of days...

Who needs sleep?

At midnight, a guy stopped his car in the middle our street, blared his radio and revved his engine. After 20 minutes of this, we called the police. He drove off before they arrived. We thought we were in the clear.

At 1AM, he returned and repeated this scenario. Again we called the police. Again he drove off before they arrived.

A few minutes later we heard fire engines and an ambulance. I am not embarassed to say, I hope he crashed into a telephone pole.

I'm really hoping I get some sleep tonight.

Where is the sun?

We're having June gloom a bit early in LA this year. It's been overcast since Sunday.

I finished the tank top I was working on but won't be posting pictures until I get some good natural light to snap them by. The pic I took before leaving for Stumptown was shot under a lamp and does a great injustice to the lovely colors. : (

I just noticed on Ravelry that someone has started making a Mah Jongg Bag based on my pattern. She is 30% done, but there is no picture of it yet. I can't wait to see the finished project!
