I’ve now listed a couple of scarves on my Etsy shop! Have at it! There’s lots more to come, I think – the weaving is just so fun, and I love to see how the yarn works up into woven fabric. I sort of fear what saying this will do – but if you have a particular colour family and size in mind, email me and we’ll see what we can work out!

Since I don’t really have much else, I think it’s time for a (rare around here) meme that’s been going around.

1. What was I doing ten years ago?
Let’s see…I was 13 (yep), just finishing grade eight. I guess since it’s June, we were mostly goofing off for the end of the year, watching the World Cup in class since my teacher was big on soccer, signing yearbooks, that kind of thing. I was excited to graduate middle school and nervous about going on to the big high school! I had a great group of friends and we mostly stayed together even through high school (gaining people along the way). I still see them once in a while now. Something I don’t miss: a group of bullies.

2. What are five things on my to-do list today?
List stuff on Etsy (already done), finish the front bands of my cashmere sweater, straighten up my room, weave another scarf, eat agnolotti for dinner.

3. Snacks I enjoy:
What the heck don’t I enjoy?! I’ve been eating lots of toast with melted aged cheddar and tomato; anything sweet or chocolate really, leftover supper food, deviled eggs, fresh homebaked bread and butter. Man, I love carbs.

4. Places I’ve Lived:
Toronto, Ontario. I’ve lived in the same room all my life, people. Time for a change sometime soon (realistically not for awhile).

Where would I LIKE to live?
Downtown Toronto, in some fantastical house that might not exist for my forseeable budget, with a bright airy studio/office space and a gorgeous kitchen. I certainly can’t see myself actually living anywhere other than here, but I’d love extended visits to Vancouver, Montreal, maybe NYC, London.

5. Things I’d do if I was a billionaire:
Tough one. Build a house in the country with tons of vegetable garden and sheep; build houses for my parents and sisters; travel; establish a couple of scholarship funds; try to use the money to do some good for the environment, farmers, children, and society in general. How’s that for broad?

    Wow! I can’t imagine living in just one place. I’ve moved a lot.

    Congrats on your etsy store. I’ve been trying to get my act together for a while (still).

    The scarves are lovely! I particularly like the orange one.
