Okay! Today was a bit of a shopping day for me... I went to American Apparel and, as always, I came out of there with some nice tops. An eggplant tank and a nice green wide neck t-shirt that shows off some back. Oh, by the way, this is the summer of feeling sexy...I don't know how I'm going to get there, but I'm really trying my hardest to do things to make me feel good about me! I also went CD shopping. For all you local folk, you'll know that the weather in Montreal today was reminiscent of a day in the jungle (not tooooo hot but really murky) so, I let myself be swayed by that mood. I bought 3, yes three CD's. The first is the soundtrack to Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou which is actually a guy (Seu Jorge) singing Bowie songs in portugese. It's really, really good, and seriously perfect chilling music. I also got the latest CD by Projet Gotan. They're kick-ass cool. I don't know from where they are, but it's like lounge-ish south american music. That's what I'm listening to now and I strongly recommend it. Finally, I got the new Cheikh Lô CD. He's a senegalese singer who combines good old african rythms with some brasilian sounds, especially the percussions. He's amazing. I know many people are adverse to world music, but to you I say try it, you may like it.
On the knitting front, I only have the final ribbing on the body of the shrug as well as the lace trim on the sleeves. Wow, this thing knit up super fast and super well...I've also decided that for the World Cup, I'll be knitting the caftan top from the spring IK in a scrub-green (but nicer) cotton. I think it'll come out gorgeous!
BTW, Serge thanks you all for the nice comments, he's been posing for some more pics that are to come soon! :-)
