I was in need of a haircut. Correction. I was in desperate need of a haircut. I kept putting it off (like I do with most things) until I couldn't stand it.
I love the 1940's styles but I trust my hairdresser to do what's best with my hair, facial lines and age (of course).
She did an awesome job. We're waiting for a bit more length but after I went home and took a good look at this style, I'm afraid it's a keeper. I even received a nice compliment from the DH.
Usually after a haircut I ask if he notices anything different and after his failed attempts at "...is that a new top? new hair color?" he finally guesses correctly and then mumbles a feeble, "oh that's nice." This time was different.
Thanks Laura, you're the best.
My sock knitting mojo has returned. Feeling the need of knitting satisfaction, I grabbed the container of scrap sock yarn and cast on. These babies were so fascinating and fun I couldn't put them down. They were finished in 4 days! I think that's a record for me. I have no idea why it is so fulfilling for me to make something from scraps. Probably my frugal upbringing.
The DD quickly put her mark on them for Christmas. Speaking of the C word, I need to get those elves down here pronto! There are gifts to be finished.
