I'm showing the most unflattering photo of myself because it shows off the beautiful color of this silk sweater best. My eyes look like I had too much wine at lunch.
blue-green color of the Habu tsumugi silk. BTW, I used Berroco's free pattern, Jujuba, 2 cones of tsumugi silk and size 7 needles.
Getty Center restaurant.
Florentine art and Mapplethorpe exhibits, then strolled the grounds. We went mainly to see the Florentine art. It's not every day that you can see seven Giottos. However, I discovered that I prefer Daddi. The Mapplethorpe was fantastic. Go!
The color of this sweater reminds me of malachite. The Getty center is completely faced in Italian travertine. The stone travelled across the Atlantic, through the Panama canal (after being transferred to smaller boats that fit in the canal) and then transferred again to a larger ship for the Pacific journey.
A very fun date with Bad Dad.
