Got my hair cut yesterday by Gwyn and have been very very pleased with it. If you’re local, I highly recommend her.

Knitting: got the last pythagorean repeat finished on Hayes’ baby blankie and now I’m into the ribbing. But I knew it was going to be a letdown when I didn’t have it to work on anymore after an intense month of it.

And I knew that sometimes that makes me sit around and admire the thing–okay, call it what it is, dithering helplessly–rather than getting to it on the next big thing.

And I had the next emotionally-big thing to do.

So to head off any lagging, I got a good start on a scarf for a friend’s daughter who’s going off to college for the first time, to send her off with an extra helping of love from friends. One she knows, two she doesn’t: the yarn is the exquisite but discontinued Cascade Epiphany, royal baby alpaca/silk/cashmere, via a gift certificate to Purlescence from those two other knitters. Who were quite delighted for the new college student’s sake when I told them.

I have my own hair-cutter, thank you.
That blanket is gorgeous!

Oh boy! That’s a great boy-blanket.

Hooray for a good haircut. Different shampoo/conditioner today, and the world is a better place here.

The blanket looks wonderful, but I know the ache of the project long at your side now finished. Funny, though, I don’t worry at all about you figuring out something new to knit. 🙂

I am always so relieved when a big project is done….I can’t imagine missing it!
