Warm and Fuzzy

30.9.10



I remember going on a youth retreat a few years back in high school. We were asked to design little boxes with pocket holes, and to leave them hanging in the foyer. During the course of the trip, other students were suppossed to leave little positive notes in your box for you to read at the end of the trip. Said notes were supposed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Sort of like that feeling you get when you catch a snowflake on your tongue, or perhaps when you find the most unique and beautiful item at a ridiculous bargain.

Since high school days are long gone, I found a replacement for warm fuzzies in this blanket of a cardi. I got it from new look back in May when most people were shopping for rompers and denim cut-offs. Now its coming in very handy with its extra wide neck and sleeves, for those days where we get yoyo-like weather. Now all I need is a cabin, some hot cocoa, a good book and fireplace.

Hope you're all having a pleasant week!

Bisous,
Abs

The cardi looks perfect! That color! Love it!
It's a pity cardi doesn't have pockets you could write little notes, put them into the pockets and read when you need some mood uplifting :)

I love your knitted cardi! The colour looks so nice on you.
The fair has been good but the first night it was pouring it down. The only day it is expected to be sunny is today and it was. I'm still going to go if it's raining though.
Me and my friend were actually talking about volunteering and things abroad, I think it would be the better choice cause it will just be so expensive!

Abi said...

@Sophie: The rain does have a knack for showing itself at peculiar times?! But that might make the entire experience more fun depending on your tolerance for it. I for one, happen to love the rain. And volunteering is probably more cost-efficient than other options. Hope it works out for you. You could visit Toronto ;)

Kara said...

You're all far too kind. Thank you :)

@ Caroline: It was a sweet idea!

@Ginta: Hmmm...I might have to make some little pockets myself

@Jodi: It is a cute and fun idea! Gets people interacting with each other, and lifts team spirit!
