Just a quick round up. I really should go to bed in order to pretend to go to sleep so that I can wake up early tomorrow. A classic run-on sentence and a lofty goal in my house. I'm a real night owl, but lately, I've been waking up earlier and earlier in the morning. I'm not sure why this is happening, but it should make the time change this Sunday a little easier to bear.
I decided the other day that I would finally spend the Borders gift card that my mom gave me for Christmas. I'd planned to save it for the new Amy Singer book, but decided instead to buy Erika Knight's Glamour Knits and Classic Knits. They both call for Rowan yarns, but she offers good substitution suggestions as well. I've also recently acquired Louisa Harding's Modern Classics. Modern Classics was money well spent, given all of the wonderful basic shapes, designed for several different weights of yarn. Basically, I love vintage knitwear. I'm really inspired by the designs of the 1940s and 50s, styles that so often cause my mother to wrinkle her nose and say, "that's something your grandmother would wear". I like tweed and big cozy pullovers. I love dressmaker's details and detest so many of the trends these days. Why have designers decided that we need a return of 80s fashions? I hate dropped shoulders and all of that sloppiness. They're just so unflattering.
My hair is all one color again. It's bright copper red. Not blazing, mind you, but not exactly auburn either. We'll see how it looks in a few days, after some of the dye has released. No pink highlights after all, but I'm not too disappointed about that since I'd begun to have second thoughts. Sometimes, I think, nature gets it wrong. My natural hair color is just so blah. Will try to have some pics next time around.
