I managed to do some more unpacking/repacking tonight. In the process, I unearthed a few memories stored here that I felt like sharing.
On the left is one of the first scarves I knit when I was a kid. It's acrylic, but I loved it. And yes, I was quirky back then too.
In the middle is a t-shirt from fencing camp, where I got everyone (or, at least, as many as I could) to sign in permanent marker. (Note: all those "stoner" references are due to a soapstone carving I did.) I wore the t-shirt tons, but then stopped when the ink started fading. At least one of the people on there is now "famous." (She went to the olympics, and is the author of a book.) Kinda nifty. ;)
On the right is a pair of socks from the 1991 Canada Winter Games. I was in the women's foil team. (Fencing.)
I'm not sure if I'll keep the socks (I still have the real uniform), but I'm pretty sure I'll keep the t-shirt and scarf. I am a pack rat. I try to improve, but there's some things I'm still not ready to let go of.
