Haircut and prizes!

ma-prizeThis is the package I got from jmknitster on Ravelry.  That merino is so soft and the green is perfect.  I love green.  This is from the Monthly Adventures first anniversary celebration.  The group has been  a lot of fun this year even though I only participated in about half the swaps.  This year has been so crazy that I haven’t been able to do all of them.  Anyway, the moderators put a call out a month or so ago asking for prize donations.  Everyday they announce a new winner.  Believe it or not, I am also excited about sending my donation.  I know who she is now and I plan to look her up to see if I need to change her surprise. 

I received this two days ago.  Then, yesterday I got an email from none other than MasonDixon Knitting to inform me that I won enough yarn to make the Emma Peel dress out of their new book.  I am such a dork that I emailed her to thank her and give her my address and did not give her my last name!  I was a little excited….what can I say!

In other, non-prize related news… I had my hair cut today.  I have been letting it grow out a bit.  I am gong for one of those bobs that are angled…short in the back and long in the front.  Anyway, my hair guy decided to see what it would look like straight, so her flat ironed it.  I don’t even recognize myself.  I like it, but there is no way I am going to spend an hour on my hair in the mornings….no way.  Have a look…


Sorry about the picture…I did the best I could for taking a phoo of myself with my crackberry.

    I really like the straight hair. But, I’m sure it is a lot of work. Maybe just for special occassions.
