Even though yesterday's post was only about Blaze, I actually did quite a bit on Saturday. First and foremost, I got a long overdue haircut. The last time it was cut was Halloween. I committed a huge faux pas because I went to the same salon, but saw a different stylist. I wasn't thrilled with the guy that had been cutting my hair and the silence was always very awkward. So, I decided to try a new stylist. Wouldn't you know it the other one was working and actually said hi to me. Oh well, I L.O.V.E. the new cut and the new stylist was much more talkative. As he was drying it, the owner of the salon came over and complemented the new cut and played with my hair. Somehow, that just made my day. I also mailed off the little leftover balls of sock yarn to Major Knitter. I was wondering what to do with them, now they have found a much better home and are no longer staring me in the face every time I dig into the depths of my knitting baskets. I love getting rid of guilt. A quick stop at the LYS yielded a skein of bright yellow sock yarn to use for the heels and toes of the Jaywalkers for Mom. To ensure that I had the best choice, I drove to the other side of the city and checked out a new (to me) store. It was a cute shop and I found just the right pattern for a felted hat for my 3 year old niece. I can't wait to start it. I will post pictures of Blaze once I bind off and block it. I am dying to wear it to work. I finally decided to do a 3 needle bind off under the arms. It isn't as pretty as grafting (this assumes that the grafter knows what they are doing - not necessarily a valid assumption for me), but it is done, there are no holes and no profanity was uttered during the process. It is the only seam on the sweater and it is under the arm. I can live with that.
