The closer I get to a hairdressing appointment, the more concerned I get about how my hair and scalp look. I have a skin condition which means I have problems with my scalp and face and every time I have my hair done I’m convinced that either the washer or my “stylist” is going to say something.
That, combined with the inevitable spot you get right in the middle of your face three days before hand, makes me very paranoid about my appearance.
And then they go and wash your hair for you anyway, and do a better job than you can do for yourself!
That was a very long-winded way of saying that I’m going to the hairdressers! On to the knit!
I pinned Wren up and attempted to take photos to see how it looked on me. I quite like how the neck is open and I’m not sure I’d like the massive collar on it. I’m thinking about a couple of rows of crochet around the front edges.
Oh, and the curling hem does block out. Woo Hoo!
I’m now on the second sleeve, and I’d like to actually finish this red item within the correct two-month cycle of Project Spectrum, so I’ve got to make a decision. Soon.
It stands for Summer of Socks, but also a plea for help and/or reassurance.
I know I said I wouldn’t show the design I was working on until I’d finished, but I’m not sure we are liking the finished project.
I love the idea and the inspiration behind it (all to be revealed if I stick with it) but I’m not totally sold on the execution. Garter stitch is a continuing element (from the cuff, to the heel and the instep) and I like the way it breaks up the colour a little.
So, take a good look at the photos of the finished sock and let me know what you think. Please? [Attempts to remove note of desperation from voice!]
