Friday, May 4

I really tried

I have a half descent digital camera..(Fuji Fine Pix e510) and usually I'm able to capture my subject quite nicely, but I've been having a bear of a time getting a good shot of a modeled Gathering Intentions, hence no post about it lately.
Leave it to my 2 year old daughter to get the best shot. I kinda look like a cow in it, but it shows the sweater pretty well. I also have a new (well 40 years old but new to me) dress form for which to size shape and block all of my items. It has been in my garage FOREVER courtesy of my husband's grandmother (who used to own our house) and I just remembered this week that we had it. Yay me!! On other YAY news, I got my hair cut today. I am so pleased with it I cannot tell you. I've finally found a hairdresser that understood what I wanted and did exactly that. I have some before and after shots for you as well.

Here's me this morning before going out for my haircut.....

And Here's me after the cut...quite happy about it!!
I have always liked changing up my hair frequently, but my husband has this strange guy thing about girls with long hair. So, I let it grow...and grow...until I just couldn't take it anymore. Moms of four need quick in the shower out the door hair cuts. I sent The Man to do the groceries while I had my cut done, and when I walked into the store he smiled and said my hair was hot. Hot? I'm not sure he's ever referred to my hair as hot, but I'm guessing it's a good thing.
Let's see...what else is new...Oh yeah I almost forgot to mention that I have started a new blog about my weight loss journey here.
Come on by and visit if you are so inclined. It's still in the very baby stages of a blog, but I thought that rather than bore my knitting content related readers, I would set up shop somewhere else to chronicle my weight loss project.
Happy Friday everyone...get out and enjoy the sun!

The sweater looks great and I love the new hair cut. I've yet to find someone that can give me a cut I like.
