Keeping Me in Stitches

Hair today, gone tomorrow!

Well...I did it. I cut all my hair off. Most of it anyway. My friend, Katy, and I had decided to few months ago to donate our hair to Locks of Love. And today was the big day.

Here's how long my hair was.

And here it is now!

Pardon the bad "in the bathroom mirror" pictures and the fact that I look like death warmed over. I worked Monday night into Tuesday morning, so my after pictures were take about noon when I'd been awake about 23 hours.

And I have an FO!!! My Noro Silk Garden clapotis is done! Again, cruddy pictures, but I'll get a better one on Thursday if one of the ladies at SoP will help me.

It's color #82, and very fall-esque. I wanted something a little darker for fall/winter than my last clapotis.

And yes....I use insulation for my blocking board. You should have seen the look on the guy's face at Lowe's when I told him what it was for. He must have thought I was nuts! How many people go into Lowe's to buy a single sheet of insulation?!

    just beautiful! and what a good idea about the insulation board. and i bet a hell of a lot cheaper than the "blocking boards" on sale at knit picks for 70 bucks
    see ya thursday

    I think your coiff and le clapotis look simply smashing! Once you get used to the whole short and sassy thing, you can add a bit of color, just for fun. I can recommend some lovely autumnal shades of Manic Panic when I see you Thurs.

    And thanks for looking for my lost knitting thang. I actually found it amongst my (clean) drawers in a laundry basket. (I'd been doing some wash before I left home, doncha know).

    Many thanks again for the hospitality, and I hope Phoebe the Dog approves of your new look, too!

    wow, what a dif! and i think it's been more than a few months since you started, i've never seen you with short hair. and i think i've been going to SoP for a year now, or damned close to it. it looks great!

    you think buying one sheet is bad? try asking for half a sheet. i covered it with flannel to block my snowflakes. since i'd soaked them in simple syrup, they come up off the flannel much easier, lol.

    and now that i've found my camera, i can take pictures! (i had to buy cheapie batteries though, mine were dead (all 10 of them!) and no time to charge them as i needed a picture for liam's school poster (gotta love homework assignments that i HAVE to help him with (not!))

    and my confirmation word is
    ewxrapef. hmmm
