You guys are so funny when you talk about the L.A. Yoga Scene. Hah! First of all, let me tell ya, there ain't a whole lotta "L.A. Yoga Scene" going on much around here these past few days, because yesterday, I was the first or second one to enter the classroom for Hatha 2 and spotted a guy laying smack dab in the center of the studio all covered up with a cozy red blankie, a purple eye pillow, and sawing wood the likes I haven't heard since my long-gone grandpa used to come stay at our house. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out if he was leftover from the last class' relaxation session or if he was really tired and immediately fell asleep a few minutes before I arrived.
So he was snoring like all get out, there in the center of the room, and as the rest of the class settled in as far away and around him as they could, he kept on doing what he was doing all snuggled up like a bug in a rug with swollen adenoids something awful.
Once class got started, he kept snoring. He snored his way through the beginning relaxation (I figure he would wake up by this time), through several vinyasas, and then when we were doing some standing balances about forty minutes later, the snoring stopped. Next thing I know, I peek on over and there he is in tree pose in the center of the room as if nothing ever happened.
So tonight HWWV is working a bar mitzvah and Girlfriend and I will be on our own. Many weekends are like this now, and although we do miss him, she gets to watch a video and I try to get some knitting done. I have a few projects due for Knitscene and another one for Blue Sky Alpacas, but I think tonight I'll make another beret for my sister, kind of like the purple one that I made that fits her so well, the one with Malabrigo. I have a skein of natural Malabrigo and some Trendsetter Dune with a bit of gold glitz (see the pic way above), so I'll knit the two together and make her another beret. I'm not usually for the glitz, but my sister, Dooze, is a girly girl and asked for it specifically. Here is a picture HWWV took of her and her husband recently. I have wanted to show you this fabulous picture for a long time, but she didn't tell our dad about her giant tattoo until recently. Now that he knows, well, you know how these things go.
BTW: I am still considering ads on the site and have read all of your comments (thank you!). I am exploring many options and if I do have ads, they will be carefully selected and nothing will flash or sparkle or dance across the page. I'm not into the glitz, remember? Oh, and thanks also for your comments and emails about the beret I just made out of Rowan Spray. It was super easy, so if you bug me, I'll write out a pattern for you.
