Thanks for everyone's input into my haircut wishy-washiness. Ultimately, my hairdresser Kate, told me that I should keep my hair a little bit long for now, and also give my mother a grandson very soon. (It must be the Asian culture...) I wasn't ready to hack it off yet anyhow, (or, um, have a child).
I like it. She put in a lot of layers, and it feels a lot lighter and choppy.
One of my best friends, KJ visited me from Brooklyn. She was my personal chef this weekend, and cooked fish tacos with a mango salsa while I sipped on vanilla mojitos and watched. I then dragged this poor girl to a wedding ceremony (knitting friend) and to Rittenhouse Square where we met more (knitting) friends! She enjoyed herself, and we made sure to get gelato afterwards.
I worked a bit on my City Shawl using the Tilli Tomas yarn. I don't have enough yardage (270 instead of 300 yards), so was knitting with smaller needles (size 13). I may rip it out and try again on larger needles (size 15 or 17) and do more lace and less of the garter rows. It's such a quick knit, and gorgeous yarn, that I don't mind working with it a bit more before it's completed.
Oh yeah, I also visited my "little" cousin, Bobby, who graduated from college last weekend in Fairfield, Connecticut. He lives in a house with nine guys on the Long Island Sound. Here we are standing in front of the keg on the deck / driving range where they hit balls into the water and collect them during low tide. Nice view, eh?
We ended our long weekend with an impromptu barbeque last night (the best kind). My new motto is, "I don't need to buy a house, since we have great friends who have backyards in South Philly!"
Hope you all had a great weekend too.
