We went up to LA for a short getaway last week and I finally went to French General which I've been wanting to visit for years. It was so fabulous and I wish I had photos of the cute little store to share with you, but I just did not have time. I had to move quickly so we could get on the road and beat traffic. Just trust me and go if you have the chance. The owner, Kaari, is so nice and her shop is the best...check out her blog and website to get a feel for her impeccable style. The store is currently only open Fridays from 11-4 and I suggest calling ahead.

Just started these Bacchus socks from the Fall '08 issue of Interweave Knits and it's fun so far. At first I wasn't sure when I saw all the charts in the pattern, but they are actually easy to follow. I need to work on making those little bobbles more consistent though. The yarn is Nature's Palette fingering and the colorway is Zinfandel - perfect!
