Here are some photos from the Higashi Obon in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Obon odori is a buddhist tradition similar to Mexican Day of the Dead. Obon season in Los Angeles happens in the summer.

Today's finished object is the first sweater I ever knit. This Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater pattern was a test knit using stashed Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Berry. There are mistakes on the sleeves and bottom trim. One sleeve has an extra garter ridge and the sweater is missing a second row of decor trim that should match yoke. The pattern did not have clear instructions for knitting the sleeves and I would not have been able to figure it out without being able knit a pair of socks first. Although this sweater is a bit wonky, it is a relief to have accomplished a garment other than accessories for a change. Happy knitting!
