New Projects...New Yarn...New Look!

I wanted to share my progress on Hannah's Fall Sweater. The back is done, as is one of the front sides. I have cast on the other side, and I am about 20% done that...then I just have the sleeves and the finish work left to do. I cannot believe how quickly this is working up...I can't wait to see it on Hannah. I am hoping to have it done by the weekend, so perhaps a photo shoot is in order!!!

Friday we got a care package from Craig's parents. Inside were all kinds of goodies, including this AMAZING Alpaca yarn!!! It is so soft and squishy!! They also bought me a pattern for a Heart Lace Scarf...I can't wait to cast on, though I am nervous to be knitting with such amazing yarn. Hopefully I can finish the scarf before Christmas so I can show it off when we go back East.

Last but not least...I got a makeover of sorts this past week!!! Last weekend I got new glasses. I decided on a funky pair of purple glasses...you only live once, right?? Then, this past Friday night, I took the plunge and chopped off my hair!!! I went for an angled bob. It is longer in the front and quite short in the back. So far I have gotten all positive feedback about both changes...I hope everyone is telling the truth! I am still trying to get used to my lack of hair. It will take time, but I am happy I did it!!!
Here is the full transformation

My hair is messy in the "After" photo because I kept playing with it!!!
So, what did I do with my chopped locks?? Well, right now they are sitting on my bathroom counter since they cut my hair wet and I had to let it dry. Either today or tomorrow, I will be mailing off the ponytail to Locks of Love. This is the second time I have donated my hair, and I am so happy that a special child will be able to use it...seems like a no brainer to me...wig for a deserving child, or trash...hmmm.....
Well, I'm off to go work on Hannah's sweater and then perhaps she and I will go play outside. It is a beautiful day in Calgary, and I don't know how many more of these we'll have!!!
