Edwardina Scissorhands strikes again!

Well, we thought we had all of the scissors safely hidden away. Boy were we wrong. This is the face that greeted me after her quiet time:

She had managed to sneak into the kitchen and retrieve the kitchen shears. You know, the kind that are used to cut through chicken bones and such? Thank God she didn't cut skin! I took her to Great Clips to see if there was anything they could do. It took 3 hairstylists to come to the conclusion that we could buzz it or she could just wear hats. I went with the hat idea. They did try to console me with the thought that hair grows approximately 1/4" per month. Waaaaaaah! They were very surprised that she did it with scissors. They said it looked like she'd gotten hold of a razor. At church we were comforted with many a "been there, done that" story from the more experienced parents.

Speaking of bald, does anyone else think the new model of Tutankhamun looks like GI Jane? That was my first impression, anyway.

Anyway, as this is a knitting blog....

I am still working on the decreases of my clapotis. I've decided not to bleach it as it would weaken the fibers and could produce unwanted results.

For Mother's day I bought myself Nicky Epstein's Knitting on the Edge, two skeins of Crystal Palace Kid Merino in blush, Adriafil Stars in Cyclamen, and 3 skeins of Wendy Supreme Luxury DK mercenized cotton in white. Wasn't I nice to myself? LOL

Thanks for reading. I must now think of something creative for my daughter to do before she hacks away at something else!
