Don't you love how I drop off the earth for months at a time now? In the time since I last posted I have: met a man, knit a few things, actually used my spinning wheel, gone back to school, cut people's hair, taken another LOA, had my four-year-old get suspended, watched my best friend get married, rescued my daughter from a motorcycle that fell on her, and generally just been insane. My hair is a normal color again. Those crazy colors fade very quickly. Actually, most people were impressed they stayed as long as they did. But I figured it would probably look a little off if I was a bridesmaid with pink and purple hair. Especially since the wedding colors were blue and orange. The wedding was quite beautiful, I did Jamie's makeup for her. Unfortunately, I didn't get any good pictures for a portfolio. :(
Life is pretty great overall right now, if not hectic. That's the way it should be though. I made some Cigar Gloves for my boyfriend. Have to come up with a clever nickname for him. Made a few mods to them, finished all of the fingers except the pointer and middle of the right glove. He's going to use them for hunting, hunting season started today. I had to prove how skilled I am, finished the gloves in 5 days! In other knitting news, I have finished a cowl, some gloves (this is easily my new favorite pattern), and two hats. It's finally cooling down a bit here in Georgia. The weather has been lovely, and I'm just itching to sport all of my handknits. I've already had several people ask me to knit things for them!
The kids are all doing fairly well, except for maybe Nolan. He's already been suspended from preschool twice. He has to see a psychiatrist now, to pinpoint what exactly is going on with him. It's been really difficult to see all of this happening. I just wish he could show everyone the sweet, sunshiny, caring boy that's inside of him.
