It looks like this:
I've finished creating the entire pattern and now it's just repeat, repeat, repeat. Well, that is with exception of the border - which it will have.
So a bit about the yarn and colors. Here's what I'm using:
It's cold today - again.
16F degrees now, but it was even colder this morning when I went into the bathroom and looked out the window and saw this:
Although tomorrow is slated to be warmer (high of 32F degrees - up to the freezing point wow), we are also supposed to get a few more inches of snow.
Running group meets OUTSIDE at 7:30am. It will be 19F degrees at that time with a 4F degree wind chill feeling. I will be hunting down my warmest running apparatus tonight! I'm dreading it but the big payoff will be that by 9am when the snow begins, I will be back at home drinking coffee after logging 3 miles in the out of doors. I'm out for dinner with friends tomorrow night at a Mexican place and that means MARGARITAS! OOOOH I love me some margaritas. Coffee and margaritas, coffee and margaritas. That will have to be my mantra as I run up hills in the below freezy weather!
Yesterday I visited my neighborhood salon to make the bits of grey disappear from my hair.. As it was WAY to cold to leave with wet curls (my natural albeit lazy hairdo), I had Alexandra blow my hair dry and straight. It's fun to have straight hair every now and again. I'd probably do it more if I had my own personal hair stylist as I WAY don't have the patience to go on about my hair for 20 minute sessions of blow drying.
Here's how I looked when I left the salon:
What do you think? I'm super terrible about taking selfies.
And just in case you were counting, it's officially ONE WEEK from today and I will turn FIFTY!!!! My middle son's 20th birthday is today but he's 5 hours away at college, so I sent him a package full of munchies and gift cards and that will have to do.
Happy Day - it's off to do some long overdue photo work today! Sher
