Gin. Knitting. Monkeys. What more could you ask for?!

You've Probably Already Seen It, But. . .

I'm kinda excited about my completed bag. This is for WeeMonkeyGurl's drama teacher, who, in addition to dealing with her dying mother (conveniently located in NYC), her daughter starting college, and the usual chaos that rules a woman's life, managed to produce a very impressive staging of West Side Story, performed entirely by the under-12 crowd. [one day, when he gets around to it, the Jman should have some pretty amazing photos.]

Drama Teacher took a shine to WeeMonkeyGurl the first time they met, three years ago, and still gives her extra special attention (I know all parents would like that to be true, but it really *is* true in this case).

So here's the COMPLETELY FINISHED project.

As modeled by Monkey:

Outstanding lining (SO I DON'T HAVE TO WEAVE IN THE ENDS!!!!!) - "no sew" fleece, on sale at Joann's. Perfect for an old hippie, no?!

And, the best part - The GOODIES. Lavender soap and lotion (to help calm the nerves); chocolate money (so her life is rich); and fahncee cookies (so her life is sweet).

I hope she likes it. Because if she doesn't, I'm taking it back. Especially the cookies.

The goodies may be good, but they certainly aren't the best part. The best part is the absof***in'lutely amazing bag.
