Keeping Me in Stitches

I'm back baby!

Wow! Hadn't realized how long it had been since I last blogged! But I come bearing pictures.

First are my Holidazed socks. These were part of the December shipment for the RSC last year. Done in the medium size, STR mediumweight in Muddy Autumn Rainbow. I think this is going to be my new go-to pattern for the rest of the mediumweight STR in my stash. Easy to memorize and it's got so much ribbing to it that it hugs my foot nicely.

And here's a really bad, blurry, bathroom mirror picture of my Snow White sweater. I'll get a better one this weekend hopefully.

And my February Lady sweater. Don't know what's up with the squinty eye in this one...wasn't that sunny out when we took it. I'll try to get a better one of this over the weekend as well. Oy. Done in DiC Classy in Blue Lagoon. I ended up not making the sleeves full-length like I originally planned because....well...I'm not a patient person and I wanted the sweater done. Now I'm glad that I did them 3/4.

Last of the pics is one of my new hair! I still go to a hairdresser in my hometown 4 hours away because I trust her and can just walk in for my appointment and tell her to "have fun." It always comes out different and always looks good. You can't really tell from the picture, but that dark part is just in the front. The rest of it is about 4 different colors and I love it so much! Might have her keep it this way for a while.

Aside from that, I've been spinning some and since the weather has been nice I've been out letterboxing too. And I bought a Kindle 2 which is my new baby. It's so nice to not have to cart around a heavy book in my bag all the time.
