in sleepy town






Pictured above: One of Tara-Lynn's deliciously soft cowls, the Belleville Shawl and the familiar round these parts  Carlington Scarf. See more incredibly cozy knits here.

A couple months ago I received a glorious delivery of lovingly crafted knits from Canadian knitter and constant source of inspiration, Tara-Lynn. I've been meaning to make a post sharing this bundle but have found myself rather swamped this past month with various (exciting) duties in preparation for TLO's lingerie launch! Today we completed our hunt for the perfect fabrics in downtown Los Angeles and promptly began plotting our launch party(ies). If you are a Los Angeles lady and don't mind modeling in your skivvies please let me know! I'd love to set up an appointment with you this friday in our Altadena showroom (I will feed you mini chocolate bars, assorted fancy nuts, something with cheese and coffee).

Alright friends, the allergy pill that I took after greedily filling myself with said miniature chocolate bars is taking it's toll and I'm starting to make up words. I promise one day I'll write a post of true substance and not just a post containing brief updates and a promise of better posts to come. I'm the shopping mall Santa of the blogging world. Full of empty promises and allergy medication. I see a kitty is coming to visit me and that is most definitely my cue to get off of here and enter kitty dreamland.

(ps. I believe it was 100 today, which may also account for my abnormal sluggishness, can you imagine? 100 in November? Well, when I was a little girl there was often snow in the first week of November! Granted, I was living significantly north of my present location. See this? wondrous allergy medication at work, turning me into your grandpa.)

  2. Hi Hannah! we are buddies via The Loved One on facebook & I'm so happy to have finally dug into your blog, it's an absolute dreaaam! I'm an LA girl, but alas I'm short & curvey so modeling is not exactly my forte! However, my momma & I work in custom clothing production so if you're ever in need of production or sample making feel free to give me a holler :)

  3. Brrr, it's so cold here I'm a) lusting after dem knits and b) jealous of your 100° weather! Good luck on your opening soirée, if I lived in the area I would certainly drop by if only to have, you know, cheese and coffee. My favorite things!
