Shorn

Here's one of those deadline projects I was talking about yesterday
A pair of socks, loosely based on Summer Grazing. I condensed the chart a bit, so they are a few inches longer than ankle socks, because I'm using all scrap balls - a mix of Jungle Cat, Alley Cat, Twinkle Cat and Barn Cat.  It's a fun little pattern that's moving very quickly  - which is good because the deadline for these is mid-May.

And while we're on the subject of sheep... let's talk about shearing...
The other day after work, I got off the bus and headed into the salon and chopped it all off. While bleaching and pink hair is fun... it is hard on your hair and I got tired of all the tangles. Time to start fresh...

Kinda like spring cleaning.... for my head!

Hi Valerie, I love your hair! Looks great on you. I recently changed my hair colour to something quite different for me but I wanted a change too.
The socks are adorable!
Have a good day.

OMG! Your hair looks GORGEOUS! Love the new look. And those sheepy socks are just too darn cute. I was thinking of making some based on Baable...some day, too many other things going on now.
