I told my daughter the best kept secret place to see celebrities is at yarn shops!! Of course, she didn't believe me but we still got to visit the following:
YARNS UNLIMITED on PICO BLVD. IN SANTA MONICA
This shop was on my list to visit but I actually stumbled across it and saw the sign as I was driving by !!
HUGE store, shelves and bins from floor to ceiling. A nice selection of yarns on sale too.
2 ONE SKEINS PURCHASED
WOW - only 5 minutes away from our hotel in MANHATTAN BEACH !! I was very inspired by this shop's Knit for Charity collection. The owner was delightful and introduced me to
I purchased a beautiful
LANTERN MOON Knitting Basket and 2 skeins of MEDITATION. This amazingly soft yarn smells of lavender and I can't wait to make a scarf with it. Very "ZEN CALIFORNIA" !!
Also on MONTANA AVE.
We spent a day at the beach where I worked on the Market Squares Entrelac Bag
I made even MORE progress on the bag waiting 5 hours in LAX for our return flight to Cleveland!!
Well worth the 10 minute drive over to LAGUNA HILLS, we visited:
This HUGE store had a collection of EVERYTHING!!
I especially loved the wall of COLORFUL CASCADE 220 (my favorite for felted bags)
and an amazing collection of NORO KUREYON, my other felting favorite!!
My daughter enjoyed her purchases on our vacation as well from
RODEO DRIVE in BEVERLY HILLS !!
