mid week update

I promised I'd post pictures of my newest Sundara yarn, Blackberry, so here are a few from my *photoshoot* the other night:

I apologize for such a quick post, but things at work are crazy this week! I'm trying to lie low in preparation for a very long day tomorrow, which will start at 6:00 am. On the bright side, though, I get to go to a big private event at MoMA for work tomorrow night! Very excited about it. There should be some interesting names making an appearance. I'll let you know if I meet anyone famous.

Over the weekend I had my hair "trimmed". I don't have any pictures of it yet, but I think I like it. See, I'm growing it out, but wanted to have a style in the mean time. I have lots of hair, but it's very fine. My new stylist cut out about 2/3 of my hair by thinning it out (she didn't use those horrible scissors with the comb-thing on one blade). The result is that my hair appears to be the same length as before, but it now behaves much more wispy and voluminous. Victory! Pictures of it to come.

I FINALLY motivated myself to finish my Mason Dixon Ball Band wash cloth. I did knit several extra rows on this one to make it more substantial. Someone very important to me is expecting a little one in a while, and I thought maaaaybe she'd like to toss it over her shoulder as a fashionable 'pit-up towel. Here's a pic:

Finally, I treated myself to a little bauble last week by the Etsy artist/seller Sudlow. It's a little pea pod pendant made of silver and pearls on a simple silver chain! So cute. Here's a bad picture or two of it:

ooo, I've seen the guest list for the MoMa event. You are soooo lucky to go.

The necklace is beautiful! I've already contacted the artist to see if she's going to be making any more. I saw several of the pea in pod earrings on her site but she didn't currently have any of the necklaces. I've gotta have one!

I saw that necklace and had to have one. I e-mailed the gal and she made me up a necklace and earrings and sent me a bunch of photos of different pearls to choose from. Haven't received it yet and I'm so excited! She needs to give you a commission!
