My Mitt and The Do

Is anyone else having delayed reaction to the new year? Come on, January is practically over with and I'm still writing 07 on my checks.

With the cold snap this week and no sign of increase in warmth any time soon, I was loving the idea of having my Endpaper Mitts done. Picturing myself at work wearing these on those days when "The Guys" want to open all the windows. I got into a rhythm with the pattern and by holding the extra color yarn in my left hand I was able to complete the first mitt fairly quickly.



Not quite done yet as I have another on the needles, but loving this quick little project.

Lately I've been pondering whether or not to get my hair cut. I love having the length, but have been very disappointed in what others have tried with my do. I gave in and figured...heck it grows right? Here was the before picture in the morning hours before going to the salon.



Not the best I can look, but why do yourself up for the hair stylist to just undo what took you time to make up. Here is me afterwards...



Okay, seriously better and loving the bounciness of my curls. On a side note, I haven't had bangs since High School... a little scared of the whole idea, but I was jumping in with both feet this time. It's growing on me and to really get the full effect of wispy bangs (if I want them) involves the iron. Otherwise they curl right along with everything else...awesome.

It will be another busy week for me but hopefully I'll be able to pop on by with an update. Don't you just hate responsibility;)

I am so jealous of your hair...in either picture. Whoever you went to did a great job.

Definitely a good look for you! Totally changes your face. I love it!
I'm in the same boat. Time to cut it. But unfortunately, I don't have those beautiful curls you have!
