For any new visitors to my blog, I’m flying out to Los Angeles to tape 3 episodes of Uncommon Threads a craft show on the DIY channel. The folks at Screen Door Entertainment produce Uncommon Threads and Knitty Gritty, with host Vickie Howell as well as a few other super cool shows on DIY. I have been working on this for about 3 months, and will appear with Amie from NexStitch and Drew, AKA The Crochet Dude
I’m thinking about how I'm going to transport all of my crochet "stuff” to LA. So I dug around for some luggage, old carriers, duffel bags, and I found an old treasure from my younger (and wilder) days! Yes, dear readers, years ago, in the late 80's, I tried to play the drums, I was really bad, eventually sold my drum set to pay rent. Coincidence or not, but I was in and around LA back then (actually Santa Ana in "So Cal". I moved back to Minnesota, left my dream of being a drummer in a rock band, BUT I kept one of my beat up old drum cases.
Yep, this is one of my drum cases (corney stickers and all) and it will haul my crochet stuff out to LA in 10 days! Yarn in a drum case? Hauling around my crochet stuff in style? Maybe I can find a desperately needed upgrade when I'm in LA!
