Time for a change (and I'm not talking elections)...
I'm going blond(ish) at least for a few days! Tonight my neighbour and I had a lady's night. She came over and bleached my hair. I dyed my hair black in the summer and just wanted it out because there's a colour I really want to dye it called ginger spice or something like that, it's a reddish copper brown...really pretty but there was no way I was going to achieve that with out a bleaching first. I know what you're thinking, SO horrible for your hair, but this is only the second time in my life I've put a bleach in so I though what the heck.
While we were waiting for my hair to develop, I gave her a knitting lesson. She's been bugging me since the summer for one because she got all these knitting needles from her mother-in-law and thought she might as well do something with them. We just did the basics, casting on and straight knitting for now.
I worked on my practice sock for the Olympics while she played around with the knitting. It doesn't seem to be too hard yet. The only thing I find is that I'm using metal needles and they feel really heavy when you're doing a project on 3 needles. I'm using acrylic needles for the sleeve of the baby sweater and I like the feel of them much better. Perhaps down the road I will be investing in some nice light dpn's because I really enjoy working on 3 needles for some reason.
That's it for me, I'm off to bed!
