I'm going to be doing a knitting group tonight with my second job and I'll be starting a new project. I'm very excited because I'll be using real wool (not Zellers or Walmart fake wool) and making a cute bag that I'll then soak in boiling water to 'felt' it and make it all snug and tight like a dreadlock. This reference may date me, but here goes: In university my roomates used to call me 'Sophia' after the character played on Golden Girls by Estelle Geddy. The reason was that, even inside our house, I ALWAYS carried around a giant handbag (handmade for me by our foster child, Lucy, in Nairobi) in order to have instant access to my smokes and lipbalm. I kicked the cigarettes 12 years ago, but still have a hobbling addiction to lipbalm.
Me making my own handmade bag is thematically appropriate to this blog because I am using the yarn donated from my most craftiest of friends, Sarah, rather than buying anything new.
In other saintly news, I am at 65% of my fundraising goal for the endcancer.ca walk. That is pretty awesome, guys, if I do say so myself. It is my birthday on Sunday, and I hope to rake in a few more bucks towards my $2000 goal then.
My shopping vintage spree is coming up on May 22nd with Cindy (yeah!), and now that I'm back in Toronto and semi-sorted out, I am going to check in with Stella asap re: borrowing a book about living free. Also, I just realized who my new 15th follower is, Sabrina, and am suitably delighted.
I'll post a picture when I finish my handbag.
