First Haircut

Well, I gave Grace her first haircut tonight. It is kind of rough, but she had quite a serious mullet happening. I just cut the back along her neck so that that top can catch up . I think she looks cute.

Just writing it down here so that I can look at the post date and add it to the baby book later.

Baby books...they start out so exciting, and eventually the empty pages build and build. Luckily, I've been writing a lot on this blog, so I plan to look back through my posts and take quotes out to pair with pictures for the book. I really want to do that soon, so time does not keep slipping by.

I finished the plain old seed stitch scarf and it's happily blocking right now. I'm pretty impressed with it. For being made with a yarn I did not like, it looks great! I think the key with variegated yarns to use a simple stitch pattern. If you do something like lace or cables, it just gets lost in the colours, and it looks all jumbled and strange. I will post pictures after it's dry.
