I am a Kitsilano housewife; I sculpt my body at hot yoga,
dine on organic food, and stroll down to the Granville Island
Market for my weekly grocery-shop. I live the good life with
my tall, dark, well-educated (and wealthy) husband. I have
a busy volunteer schedule but still manage to find plenty of
leisure time to bask in the sunshine at Kits beach and knit
my heart out! (ok… I must admit, this is a fantasy.. but
an interesting fantasy nonetheless!)
This frothy little kerchief would is the perfect addition to the
hottie housewife’s wardrobe. It also works for all the rest of
us wannabes who still have to work for a living!
