This weekend is a program of self-improvment: Hair, dentist for cleaning, new tatoos, probably some gym time. I hope to have a new tatoo/new Purple Suede Bikini photo for you all very soon.

Here's the final Alchemy Haiku shawl for mom:
That was hella stockinette, with a little garter thrown in. Tone on tone. Love it! Oh, you noticed something else? It was time for a change. Lauren, my hair stylist at The Carriage House in Cambridge, MA took me from white to purple-black yesterday and cut most of it off, too. Yes, I startle myself when I look in the mirror at this point.
In other news, I'm knitting the Blue Suede Bikini from Sexy Little Knits in purple "Suede." Yeah, as others have noticed, the pattern is a hot mess, but I avoided most of the mess by eliminating the lace pattern on the bottoms, primarily because the sort of waxing required to wear such a lacy bottom is one step further than I like to go. Sorry if that's too much information, but you know you all thought about it when you saw it.
The Russian Mittens are coming along nicely as well. Behold!
