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.
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!
