Excitement... Just Not About Knitting...

Sunday, May 17, 2009

So I promised an exciting post... because I thought I would be done with my sweater and I would have bought beautiful yarn in Fargo to show you all.  I didn't end up find the yarn I wanted in Fargo and I still have a little over a sleeve to go on the sweater (not to mention the fact that I haven't bought the buttons yet).  *sigh*  I'm such a boring knit blogger.

But I did get a haircut!

From this...

To this...

To this...

What do you think?  I'm thinking I'm going to get even more off the top... it really wants to stick up and look fluffy and I would like it to be a little more sleek and lay more flat.  I love the shortness in general though!  It's so fun!

I've been knitting a little.  You don't really want to see the same sweater with just another couple of inches of stockinette (and decreases) added on, do you?  

Didn't think so.

I tried it on the other night and just have to say: it is going to be cuuuuuu-UTE!  I'm excited!

This week I only have one final exam and I don't start working full-time in the lab until next week so I hope to have LOTS of knitting time.  Next week, I promise my entry will be much more exciting.  ;)

This morning Kurt made me crepes and I made a blueberry sauce to go with them.  It's our Mother's Day tradition except usually I am making the crepes.  He has grown up so much in the last year that him making them was just a natural progression.  He's gotten to be quite the cook.  I'll be spending my day studying for my exam and lounging around on the couch, which is just fine with me.

Happy Mother's Day, for you mothers out there!
