My branching out is finished and blocked, but I don’t have a picture of it blocked yet, so here it is before blocking
And being worn by the cat
It ended up being fine in length – it stretched quite a bit, around 6 inches in length. I’m very, very happy with it, and happy with the wonders of blocking. I’m also very happy that I chose to do it in green, because it goes beautifully with my new hair, which as of today is auburn.
Just for reference, my hair yesterday looked like this
Quite a difference! I love the richness of the color, and I’m terribly excited to not be a blonde anymore – I was getting bored. I like to change my haircolor, and it’s been nearly every one, but after a bad experience involving some “black cherry” dye that was at first purple and then black, followed by expensive salon treatments and stripey hair, I kept it pretty blonde for the past two years.
I promised pictures of the yarn winder Marc built for me out of legos, but this is the best I have.
I’m in danger of becoming a crazy cat lady. I actually have two cats, but the other one won’t let you do whatever to her the way that Leon will, so she is rarely the subject of photographs.
And some random yarn p0rn, this is the Knitpicks shimmer I got the other day. It’s going to become a shawl.
