New Look, Same Old Blog

I've switched the "new & improved" blogger. I haven't played around with it enough to decide whether or not I like it yet and I don't have time this morning. So, consider this fair warning, the new look could change from day to day. Feel free to weigh in on the readability of the colors.



I took a couple of days off work since I've been feeling crappy and my son doesn't have school today. Not that at 14 he really needs me hovering, but it's still nice. Luckily he doesn't need me to hover because I have a 3 hour hair overhaul scheduled for this morning. I was shocked and a little insulted to find out that the salon scheduled me for 3 hours to get a six week tint touch-up, some highlights/lowlights and a trim.



This being my schedule for the day, I woke up this morning thinking about what I need to take with me in the way of knitting. I mean, if I'm going to be sitting around "processing" I've got to have knitting with me. Last time I got this done I was without knitting and had to read "Town & Country" for an hour. Not that I am not fascinated by the engagements, homes and tasteful soirees of the northeastern horsey set, but honest to God I have to have my knitting. (Who are these people and moreover, who cares?)



I'm working on the Somewhat Cowl in this cashmere but I'm worried about taking my beloved cashmere to the salon. What if something spills on it? I wouldn't wear cashmere to get my hair colored, why would I tote it along with me?



I've got two sleeves on one big needle, but they are at the big and ungainly point. I of course have a pair of fuzzy feet on the needles, but what if they go too fast?



I'm thinking I have to take some cotton and refine this:
Not the best picture, but the beta version of my retro diner towel. Gotta run to my hair appointment. Hopefully the 3 hours will be worth it.

Socks are my standard salon knitting. Otherwise, I end up reading Southern Living. Not bad, but I'd rather knit.

The towel turned out really cute!

Really hard to read black text on a darkish blue background...

The towel looks really great!

Julie said...

Socks are my carry along knitting project, too. Small and mindless!

Oh that Estelle is to die for. The Clapotis I knit with it is my favorite FO ever.

Three hours????? Good lord! I'm not sure I could last that long. My stylist does not encourage the knitting while she works. She loves getting knitted gifts...but there is to be no interfering with her potential need for creativity. I sit quietly with folded hands and wait for my next direction.

Oooh .. pretty, soothing blue! I like! I played a lot when I switched mine over, and I'm still not done, but getting there.

I always take something cotton and simple with me to the hair salon. That way I can even knit while my girl's working on me .. she thinks it's a hoot to watch me knit and talk at the same time.

3hours??? How does it look??

I really like that towel! So handy and makes sense to have it attached to something. My towels mysteriously disappear!
