A nurse who knits…

I got my hair cut

Filed under: Life in general — yarnnut @ 11:01 pm

I got some pampering today. I saw my friend Angie who gave me a hair cut. She does great hair styles! Of course, it’s all flat now cause that’s what my hair does soon after styling but it still looks ok. I am going to have to blow dry my new do. We’ll see how long that lasts. But here’s a pic for you to look at.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting I also got my eyebrows waxed. Yeah!!! I don’t feel like a man anymore!!!

I almost have the Somewhat Cowl done. I actually cast off when the cowl measureed 4″ but didn’t like how it looked. So I looked at the directions and it said that I needed to make it 6″ and then sew the edge down. I learned a valuable lesson. Read the pattern.

I started the Ruana that all the cool kids in Lansing are knitting right now.

I bought the yarn back at Threadbear. I believe it is handpainted Mountain Colors. I don’t have the label anymore but I think it’s the wool ribbon. It’s quite fun to knit with. Lots of purple tones with a sprinkling of blue and plum mixed in for good measure.

And here are pictures of the Lovely Lacy Socks from Interweave Knits

This one is a progress picture of the second sock. I’m knitting the instep right now.

This last picture is the complete first sock. Oh… I almost have a pair of the lovely lacy socks. I knit them in this pretty pink Opal Peal that I got at Woven Art in East Lansing. I discovered this LYS late in my stay in East Lansing but it is a cute shop. I’m sorry I didn’t find it sooner. Everytime I went in there was some kind of knit together or book club going on. Very homey and highly recommended.

And for the record. I cannot figure out how wordpress posts pictures. I upload files and I don’t get the dialog box that the “Help” says that I’m supposed to get. It just gives me options to link the picture to the file, page, and none.  It’s supposed to give me options to display a thumbnail or the picture itself and I don’t see how to do that.  So to give you these pictures, I had to upload to photobucket and copy links.  If anyone has figured out how to post pics using WordPress, please let me know!



  1. Love the haircut. Your ruana should turn out beautifully. I’m loving mine. Can’t help you with WordPress. I had to do the same thing with photos when we use WP for the guild blog. I know it can be done, but it sure wasn’t intuitive. The Wednesday group says hi and we miss you.

  3. Cute, cute hair. It’s Wednesday, we’ll think of you tonight as we knit away at T-bear. I’m sure Sharon and Susan are there as I write this (why am I working? Oh. Yeah. to buy yarn!). Cool sox, too. Jean

  4. love love love the hair. =D
    as for WP, yea, i found out AFTER i set up all my blogs from blogger that it’s not the most perfect platform for photo-blogging. sometimes when you upload pictures, and then you click on them, that little grey menu that pops up… sometimes it allows you to do thumbnails vs. originals, sometimes it doesn’t allow you the option. i’m not quite sure why though. i’m using a WP plugin though, to help out with that, and so far it’s going good. let me know if you want info on that.
