But it just doesn't seem fair. Such is life.
OK, on to other things. First of all, I got a haircut the other day. I tried a new place, and was really very pleased. I got a haircut that I like, and it was cheaper than the place I had been going (which was cheaper than my original place, which got deep-sixed when I was unemployed). When I was finished, the stylist told me that I looked "Chic and European" (what? I didn't before???), and the salon owner said, "You look like Jean Seberg."
I don't have a picture of me with my new haircut, but truly, I look pretty much just like this. (To quote Gilbert & Sullivan, "In the dusk with the light behind her.")
Well, except I don't, really. I do have a very short haircut, that looked like that when I left the salon. (I don't do well in the heat, and in my current job, there is no air-conditioning, so the shorter the better, as far as I'm concerned.) I'm still getting used to it though, so the past few days, I've looked more like this:
(Please note: this really isn't me.)
But I'll figure it out, I'm sure ... and in the meantime, I am more comfortable. And in the summer, that's what it all boils down to for me.
In other news, I've just started a new knitting project (for me!), the Eyelet Cardigan from Blue Sky Alpacas yarn. This is Blue Sky Cotton, in the colorway Pickle:
It's a cropped (short) cardigan, but I plan to add a little bit of length to mine. I do like it, and have looked around on Ravelry to see what other people have done, what they had to say about the pattern, etc. I took inspiration from some others who have said they always knit a sleeve as a swatch - what a good idea! I even thought ahead enough to print out the errata.
I know, go figure ...
