Hair Squiggles

My youngest Imagehas hair like mine: fine, slick, and has just enough body to get ropey looking after a long days play. A while back, I gave these little squiggles a shot.  The first time around, I did 2, one on each side of her head.  The result, after a night of sleep, was a head FULL of cute curls.  They were not really tight curls, but more loose.  She wanted to try more squiggles next time around.  I planned on doing four last night after her bath, but once I started, I didn’t quite get the proportions right, and the top was a lot thinner than the bottom would turn out to be.  So I did 6.

This was NOT a good idea.

The curls were just too tight for her hair.  I finger combed it all out, and sprayed it down with some water, but it was definitely a learning experience.  Next time…4 squiggles.  BUT, this looks fairly cute all up on her head.  So this will probably go into rotation during the Summer break.  I will, however, try to make them a bit “prettier” looking than they are in this picture.


Today’s Project, completed

I buy groceries once every 2 weeks, which means if I forget something (or use it up), I’m going to be waiting on my next check to get it.  So, I forgot to pick up sugar last check, and my baking binge went through what I did have on hand. 

Well, that just means that I needed to find something else to occupy my time.  This year, I plan on cutting down on my stash of yarn.  I have quite a bit of it, from both my own purchases, and from my husband’s uncle’s destashing efforts.  I decided to make a hat.  I decided to do a knit hat, found a pattern through, and went to work on it.

Since I am a novice knitter, this took 2-3 days to complete, though IF I had actually sat and worked on it more than a few minute at a time, I think it would have been a one-day project.
