I've moved (literally)
I'm not too sure whether anyone stops by this blog anymore, but I just wanted to let you know that I've moved to..... The Crafty Kitchen.
I look forward to seeing you all over there!
The adventures of an Aussie girl living in the American Southwest...
Friday morning we were up bright and early to get our tickets for The Tonight Show. We received our tickets at NBC at 8am, then headed over to Universal Studios for a few hours.While we were there we took the Studio tour and got to see movie and tv sets from some of my favourites!
Don't go in... to the Bates Motel from Psycho!
The wreckage from War of the Worlds...
After a few hours at Universal, we headed back to NBC for the taping of the Tonight Show. It was a great show with Kevin James (King of Queens) and the guy who swam in the Arctic Circle as guests. Once again, we left NBC and headed back to Universal to finish our day. Needless to say, we were exhausted!It worked out well that on our final day, we had booked a tour of the movie stars homes (we needed to give our feet a break)! A few of the highlights included....
Elton John's new house in Bel Air - shaped like a piano of course!
Jack Nicholson's house - Love the tennis court on stilts!
Leonardo di Caprio's house - unfortunately we didn't get an invite in!
All in all, we had a great time in LA - a great place to visit, but I don't think I could ever live there!

Notes: To begin I cast on 112 stitches and worked the cuff was worked in a 1x1 rib for 14 rows. I then changed to a 4x4 rib and completed a cable every 6th row for 38 rows. Finally, I became stuck when it came to decreasing my ribs and ended up just making it up as I went along, decreasing the pearl then the knit stitches alternately. I'm very happy with the results!
