It's a sister thing

This morning, Jill came over, and instead of what we were supposed to do, we decided to go buy hair dye instead. We piddled in Target for an hour or so, picked our color(s) (technically, they're different, but they were essentially the same color), and back at my place, Dean dyed our hair.

This is the darkest my hair has ever been. I love it. We had fun, made yummy sandwiches (with avocado!), and I knit while she played Katamari (she's addicted). It's been a good day.
Last night, I found a nice fabric to line Square Cake with.

I wanted something delicate and dainty, since it is such a special occasion. Here's the progress so far:

I've only got about 10 more rows before the handles, so I'm feeling pretty good about my deadline.
Finally, here's some other fabric I've purchased in the last week:

Fat quarters I purchased on etsy (along with two half-yards of fun fabric).

I also bought this gorgeous print, which I plan to use for a dress or shirt. I'm sort of embracing yellow and orange, which I used to think washed me out.


  1. I love your hair! The color is so striking on you. Square Cake is looking gorgeous too. I think it's going to make a really fabulous gift.

  2. Okay, first thing I'm going to do is really chew your mother out for not telling me just how talented you are. Of course, I would probably just think she was bragging like most moms do, but boy, you are talented! Love your knitting. I usually crochet, but mainly because it takes way toooo long to knit! Looking forward to seeing what you embroidery, too. I cheat...I have an embroidery machine.
    Enjoy your new hair color!

  3. Hi, Jacey. This is Jennifer, Cyndy's daughter. I really enjoyed looking at your blog. You are really crafty! Your knitting is beautiful. I can't believe how much you look like your mother!

  4. I was about to comment on how I missed out on experiences like this because I don't have a sister... then about a dozen memories of cutting, dying and chemically straightening my brother and his friends' hair came flooding back to me. I'm sure it's not quite the same, though. At least I hope not. ;)
