That's a picture of my new baby. I bought it from a vendor on Ebay today. I think it's an Ashford traditional wheel, but I don't know for sure as it was only described as a solid wood Ashford wheel. I did not think I would win it as I was not willing to spend more than AU$120 for it. I thought I would be outbid when I placed my bid of AU$110. However, I won the auction! I am so pleased I am beaming from ear to ear. I hope it gets here soon!
For Christmas this year, the Hernandez clan has decided that everyone gets a $15 present from everyone else. I have decided that this year I shall ask for cash. At first I contemplated Lincraft or Spotlight vouchers. However, since winning the bid on the wheel, I have decided to ask for cash contributions to the 'wheel fund'.
I also had a haircut today. There is a new hairdresser at the corporate park where I work. My hair was annoying me all day, especially when I had to go out to Macquarie Shopping Centre at lunch time. Even when I had it up in a ponytail, it was ticking to the back of my neck. Yuck! So I walked into the hairdresser's and had it all cut off. She cut off so much hair that her assistant had to sweep the floor twice while I was there. the whole time she was cutting my hair she was commenting on how much hair I had and how thick it was and how wonderful it was. My thick hair, the bane of my life. Seems like everyone loves it - everyone but me, that is. I have been told that I will appreciate it more as I age and see my friends balding. Hmm...I find that hard to believe. So far the haircut looks good. However, it's always hard to tell how good a haircut is until a few days later - I like to wait and see how it is wearing before I decide whether I like it.
Granddad's scarf now measures 26inches. I hope to finish it well before Christmas so that I can wash and dry it before giving ti to him on Christmas day. I knitted it at the Hernandezs' yesterday and got Kitty hair all over it. I know he's not allergic to cat hair, but it would be nice to give something that does not look dirty and hairy.
