More on hair and more on *BOOKS*!

I mentioned a few posts back that my little one cut her hair again.  I thought I'd put a picture to show how minor this one was; hence my forgetting to tell my Mom about it.

Do you see the little chunk missing where I pointed the arrow?  You might also notice what a horrible job I did on trimming her bangs.  The good news is, with a rubber band in her hair and me properly using the scissors to fix her bangs, you can hardly notice the blunt cut she made.

Allright, so enough about hair this week.  Let's move on to books.  You may have noticed that I added the Amazon widgets on my sidebar.  I am going to try to make a few cents with this.  So .... if you ever need to place an order through Amazon; please do it through my blog to help me fulfill my wish list.  That means you Kim, Rhonda, and Darla - I know you all love Amazon as much as I do.

I've been reading a lot lately and have read a few ho hummers; the best by far that I've read in a few months has been a kid's series that my son has devoured.  It's called Fablehaven and so far there are 4 books with the 5th coming out next month.  I would say it is equally good as Harry Potter.  They are packed FULL of adventure and excitement.  If you and your child is looking for a great new book by an up and coming author, check out Fablehaven (Boxed Set): Fablehaven; Rise of the Evening Star; Grip of the Shadow Plague.  I'm on the 3rd book and am having a hard time putting it down to do my housework.

With her hair up like that, you can't tell that she cut her hair at all! Derek didn't even mention that she had cut her hair. I love the Anna stories. :)

The Valentine flowers were beautiful!

Goodness you have a lot of self-haircut stories! My kidlets only had one such incident, of course it was on the very morning of my (then) 5-year-old son's school picture day.

Thanks for your comment on my skew socks. I'd love to promise you it would fit your ankles, but I can only hope so. It seems really stretchy to me, with the bias-fabric, but I did read one person on ravelry who felt it was not stretchy enough, and thought the short rows made it difficult to pull on. There is an ankle gusset, with increases of six stitches over the course of 24 rows, and then decreased down over another 24 rows.

Maybe if they don't fit, you have other people who would snatch them out of your hands or right off your feet, before you've finished trying them on?

Happy knitting and such!

I'm guessing the ho-hummer is the book I recommended since you didn't mention it. - Kim
