All kinds of stuff today. Knitting too!
My Highlight for Hope. It's a weave so it should last about 6 - 8 weeks before my hair has grown long enough for it to start looking weird. I've been wanting to get this since I first told you about this new charity and this is the first chance I've gotten. Funny how living keeps getting in the way of life, eh?
Kelly Ruberto is the founder and she still hasn't gotten a webpage so I don't have anywhere to link to. The whole premise is that you get this weave, and half of the money goes to Cancer Research. Pink is the only colour you can get, but it comes in straight, wavy or curly. You can have it cut to the length you want. If you want one, talk to your stylist. I have Kelly's e-mail so I can get in touch with her and pass along names of stylists and they can talk and make arrangements to set this up in your favourite salon too. duchofb at yahoo dot ca

I really have to get this book. So much inspiration in here! I might even give crochet another go so I can make some pretty edgings or little decorative touches.
The best for last. Do you know who knit and sent these for my friends? Kay Gardiner! The Kay Gardiner!
I had to take them around and show them the whole place. Warshrags, in my house! How cool is that!
