As for my bangs, again, thank you for all the compliments. By that evening, they were pretty comical. They were standing straight up.

I guess years of pulling them back into a hair clip had taught them not to hang down on my forehead.
I really did have a terrifying Wham night. Now, they've calmed down, mostly. I'm no longer aware of them touching me and I think I'll be quite happy with them in a few more days.
As for my knitting, that's been problematic too. The Big Baby Thing is coming along nicely but my Weekender sweater is another story. My Weekender has become my stockinette in the round project to work on while I read my email. In other words, it's a slow slog of stockinette.
|All those loose ends are okay - the sweater is knit inside out!|
It had finally grown enough in length for me to bother measuring it. It was just shy of 12 inches and... OH CRUD! Seems someone forgot to change to the larger needles after they finished the ribbing. &%^%&*(*&^!!!
It was suggested at Knit Night that I pull it out and start over but nope! Ain't gonna happen! Considering the sweater is supposed to have ten inches of positive ease and I'm already ten inches bigger around than I should be... Nope! No way! No how! I'm not ripping that much stockinette and starting over. My Weekender will simply be form fitting rather than over-sized.
Hopefully I remember that I may have to make some sleeve adjustments when the time comes. I'm assuming they don't also have ten inches of ease written into the pattern. Honestly, I haven't read ahead to see. It's one of those, "I'll worry about it when the time comes" kind of things. Meanwhile, if you've knit a Weekender and have any info to share....
