Knitting Update

Knitting Update
Thanks to the extra wool my Mom sent out from the States, my Janetta Dexter Sampler Sweater is coming along nicely. Today I managed to finish the body completely and add the collar. Here I am modelling it so far. (I had to actually add in a few more designs than the original pattern called for, because mine was knitting up so short. I’ll probably have to do that on the sleeves too.)

Note: You might notice a slight reddish tinge to my hair in that middle photo. That is not a mistake. I had my hair done yesterday and I specifically told my hairdresser to make me look like a rockstar. I’m still all blonde on the top and sides but he cut in big chunks of bright red throughout the back. It looks super cool. You won’t see it until I master the art of blow-drying though. Yes, I’m truly, truly, truly outrageous!

Another note: You might also notice that I look like a fat cow in these photos. You wouldn’t be wrong there. That’s what three weeks of no gym and too many fried-foods-on-a-stick will do to you! But I’m happy to report that I’m back on my fitness regimen and I actually went for a run OUTSIDE this afternoon. I’ve only got two months til the Nike Women’s Classic so I better get training!
