A huge thank you to everyone for your support when I announced last week that I'm planning to design a sweater pattern. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! ♥ Each comment has made me feel great and really cements it for me that I made the right decision to dip my toe in the design pool.
Honestly I've had so much going on that I really don't have anything fun or interesting to share right now! I even looked at my schedule for the Briar Rose Knit-Along for the week and saw that I wrote down "Week of March 28th: Buttonholes". Huh? What was I going to say about buttonholes? Hmm. I'll have to figure that one out.
So instead I give you just a couple of photos from today from a fruitless thrifting adventure (two thrift stores, not so much as a scarf acquired). The first was out by a neat glass block wall in Uptown. It was really cold, can you tell? I even had knee highs on under my socks. Sheesh.
The second was at a hot dog restaurant I've been going to since I was little. A nice surprise was that we ran into our friend and his girlfriend also out for a Sunday hot dog.
Mel liked that I matched the wall and the booth behind me...
I just had my hair in a messy ponytail. I've had to face the fact lately that my hair has gotten to the point where I can't get it to do anything! It's just too long. I rarely seem to be able to coax it into a style that works well, wet sets are a huge chore now (if they work at all) and heated roller sets only last a few hours. Now, sometimes I go through times when I seem to be all thumbs about my hair, but this has been ongoing for quite awhile. And I finally decided that three weeks before Viva Las Vegas is not the time for me to be having major hair trauma! No sirree. So I scheduled a haircut on Thursday after work. I don't know exactly how much I'm going to get chopped off, but I'm thinking at least 3 inches. Fortunately my hair stylist knows vintage styles so I should be able to tell her how I intend to set my hair and what I'm going for. Assuming I figure out what that is. (I admit there's part of me that wants to get it cut as short as Yesterday Girl, I just love that short look but I'm not sure my hair would perform and then I'd really be screwed if I discovered it didn't!) This will be my first haircut in 2 years, and my first time getting it cut since I've had a better understanding about setting my hair, so it'll be kind of a unique experience. Wish me luck!
And hey... don't forget tomorrow night my Bombshell Shocked Giveaway ends! One more day to get your entries in!
