ODDBALLS Giving Back To The Environment

ODDBALLS

It’s official!

ODDBALLS – a division of A Hooker’s World – has found and chosen Container Recycling Institute – a local environmental charity – to receive twenty percent of all proceeds from the ODDBALLS sales line.

This decision was inspired by A Hooker’s World’s recent affiliation with Neighbors by Design, whose mission is to use the resources of our community by recycling and creating products made out of materials that otherwise would end up in the landfill. To that end, the ODDBALLS line of handmade fiber items shall be composed of scraps/leftovers from whole projects, unidentifiable fibers; all of which shall be “up-cycled” into new practical items. Attempts will be made – via burn test – to determine if unidentifiable fibers are natural or man-made.

“A Hooker’s World is proud to support Neighbors by Design’s innovative and much needed idea to save the environment for future generations. They challenged us to see what more we could do and “LIGHTBULB!” How about giving back to the environment? Hence our decision to donate twenty percent of all proceeds from the ODDBALLS line to Container Recycling Institute.”

Let’s Review

The Circus

I finally have business cards with all the correct contact information, especially phone number.

I am back in the El Segundo Slipt Stitcher’s Knitting Guild. As expected, I was warmly welcomed back by several members, much more than non-Hooker Leo fans. Because of all the drama surrounding my previous departure, I was well-behaved, not moving an inch from my chair during the entire meeting, maintaining my humility.

I am so glad to have an outlet, albeit once a month. I forgot my checkbook this time, so next month I will pay my dues and once I am a member, I will feel more comfortable ( justified 😉 ) walking around and saying hi to the less mobile Hooker Leo fans. This time I will remain in the background and go with the flow…go with the flow…go with the flow.

I have changed project name Please, Mister Postman to The Circus by Erasure, on which I have completed the body of the baby afghan 15 x 15  2-inch circles. Today I am going to watch some Being Human , and work on The Circus – on which I have just rounded the second corner of single crochet into chain [can be time consuming] ; then consider how wide a border I want there to be between the afghan body and elephants. OMG! I just had a thought…I could double crochet the border so the thickness would match the circular medallions.

Hold d’line please…yarn check. Yikes! Got stuck on color…thinking double crochet border white elephants on white backing. Crud! Got stuck on dying videos. Now I am reconsidering frogging back to foundation chain border and starting double-crochet border from that point…kind of makes more sense…aiyaa!

Ha ha ha ha ha! I was trying to find the original Please, Mr. Postman post…there is none! The featured post image is the very beginning of the what was Please, Mr. Postman, now known as The Circus.
