Three on Thursday

It's Thursday, so you know what's coming...

Three exciting things to share that happened this week.

we listed our house for sale
for sale

First, we listed our house for sale... and got a contract two days later.  I'm hesitant to even mention it.  I don't want to jinx it.  But I'm also super excited.  There are contingencies so it's not a 100% done deal but...

Second, I finally got a hair cut.  I went from,

before

to,

after

Yeah, nice blurry, highly cropped, bathroom selfies.  Sorry.

I'm loving the way the new hair looks but I'm hating the way it behaves.  It's constantly in my face.  Constantly!  I may go try something different next week.

Rectangular, stole style lace shawl
Madli's Shawl

Third, I finished the 'body' of the Madli's Shawl and am half way through the final border.  The border is knit separately then grafted onto the body.  My goal has been to finish this shawl by October 1st and it looks like I'll make it.  

Join me over at Carole's for today's Three on Thursday party.

    1. Yes! It's a little nerve wracking. Actually, I'm in a state of denial about the packing. :)

  5. Your hair looks great! Sometimes it takes awhile for it to "settle" in and behave . . . Congratulations on selling your house so quickly. That's great news. :-)

    1. Thanks! I hope I can quickly train it to stay out of my face because at the moment, I feel like Cousin It.

    1. Thanks! Me too! I feel like Cousin It and it's making me a little bit cranky. I love the way it looks... as long as I don't move my head and the wind doesn't blow. I'm just not crazy about what happens when I move.

    1. Thanks! I'm SO surprised I stayed on target with my goal of finishing the shawl by 10/1. I never expected it to actually happen. :)

  11. P.S. The hair looks great. The gal who cuts my hair told me that "gray hair can be unruly." Ha - there is a metaphor.

    1. Thanks! It's definitely unruly! The grays are like curly coat hangers. And I just have SO much hair! I know I shouldn't complain but...

  12. congrats on the house contract so quickly and I do love your hair cut, it does take a few weeks for the hair to calm down from the cut if you ask me.

    1. Thanks! I've been putting my hair in a ponytail for so long it doesn't know how to react to being down. It's also trying, not very hard if you want my opinion, to learn to be parted on the side. It's a big adjustment period.
