Wow, it is Friday already!

1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short? Wavy, with 7 cowlicks and very long.

2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime? I lost quite a lot in my early 20's. One of the side effects of trying to be extremely skinny.

3. How do your normally wear your hair? I have bangs and usually the sides are pinned back or all of it is pinned up.

4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like? I would like it to be thicker, and with more curl.

5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened? I had a "Bride of Frankenstein" perm once. I also coloured another time and ended up with purple hair. It was not a fetching look.

My knitting has really slowed lately. Partially due to the extra 17+ hours I am working per 2 week period, and partially due to the number of trips I am making to the ER with my daughter's asthma. For some reason, I just haven't been feeling much like knitting. I broke that little drought with Wendy's mousealong pattern. I whipped one up this morning, and tied a bell to the long braided tail. It looks rather odd, but the cats are intrigued. They are both nip-heads, so they are used to a regular dose of cat nip. They usually just get a pile of leaves on the floor, so they are not too sure why I felt the need to package it.

I figured that since I am knitting, I might as well finish my Fortissima socks. I don't care for this colourway all that much. It is #9076 (the purple fair isle) and it is rather blah. But I have just started the toe decreases, so I don't have too much further to go to finish them.

I haven't had much luck with knitting anything larger than socks lately. My gauge always seems to go to pot at some point in the project, and I end up with a sweater that doesn't fit well, or just plain doesn't fit. It frustrates me so much!
