The Permanent Bad-Hair Day

Even when I try, by the end of the day my hair looks like Einstein's. This happens even though I do use de-frizzing products. ARRGH!!! However, it would be even worse if I cut my hair short. Then my face would look like the full-moon all the time. Sometimes, genetics just does not work in your favour. However, I almost can't wait for the rest of my front hairline to turn white. It is really quite lovely and does not have any yellow at all. I get both the bitter and the sweet from my maternal grandmother. She was a "Gibson Girl" until the day she died (1966). That is not a bad path to follow at all.

Salish Cardigan Update

I can't believe I'm actually updating the progress of a project! Anyway, the body of the sweater has been divided into three parts: 2 fronts and the back. I am a bit more than half-way finished with the two fronts and am now working on the back. I want to get to the point of the short-row shoulder shapings at the same time. I still have not decided between a three needle cast-off or a Kitchener splice for the shoulder join. If I'm really lucky, I hope to have the sleeves cast-on by the end of next week for two-at-a-time knitting.
