Firstly, Happy New Year, everyone!
Since I'm back at work this week, I'm a-cheatin' on Starlight. It's too big to lug around (back/fronts now about 2/3 of the way to the armhole shaping), so I've ripped back my Pemaquid hat to before the decreases and plan on finishing that up in the next couple of days. Hopefully before Friday, because that's the only day I really get to make proper posts with photos (The
I will also post pics Friday of my final FO of 2006 (another hat, of course). I finished the knitting on this one back in August, but I didn't have the right button. I've been wearing it anyway, using one of the buttons I originally bought for the as-yet-unstarted Asymmetrical Cardigan. I bought a button for this hat a couple of months ago, but had been too lazy to sew it on until last Saturday.
The last picture I'll post Friday is of my sassy new face. I suppose that needs some explanation. This year, rather than making a bunch of resolutions that don't last past January, I decided to make only one resolution. My resolution for 2007 is to at least pretend that I give a crap what I look like. I mean, I dress okay (although this is more because I like clothes than because I care what I look like), I shower, I tweeze my eyebrows, and shave what needs shaving and all. BUT... I only cut my hair about once every 5-6 months (the time it takes for a chin-length bob to grow to my shoulders), and I wear virtually no makeup (pretty much just concealer and lip balm). So here I am, in my new chin-length layered bob, which I will maintain properly, and two(!) shades of eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, tinted moisturizer and powder. No blush. I draw the line at blush!
