And if you are (I am) too time crunched (lazy) to knit, they make lovely heavy scarfs.

I am so excited. I am about to sew together a tank top that I knit. Me, sewing! That is amazing. I have only been knitting for a year and thanks to everyone here helping me along I have accomplished colorwork, cables, short rows and SOCKS! Next on the bucket list is Brioche. Thanks everyone. Pics coming soon!

Congratulations on piece work sewing. My knit bucket list item for July is brioche and have a headband wip for practice. Next, hopefully this week brioche in the round, then next two color brioche. Again, much joy to your accomplishment in one year (it has been a 48 year journey in knitting for me and you have no reason to ever feel unaccomplished, believe me)

First I would like to say that the salon itself was beautiful. The other stylist may have been better. Lacy, however, was not. First she did not seem excited that I was there. She was very down and seemed to be more excited about getting off work than coloring my hair. She even made comments about how she was going to be happy about the day being over. That's fine, I get it, folks have bad days. If that was it and my hair was amazing I would consider going back. This was not the case. She did not spend much time cutting my hair. I have had more time spent at Cost Cutters and they are on a time limit. She even told me that she didn't think that layering my hair was a good idea. Gave me and excuse that my hair was thin... I felt like she just did not want to take the time to cut and texturize my hair. The color! Oh my! I went to dinner after and my date pointed out that I had color in my ear. I went to the bathroom and the inside of my ear was black! This is totally unacceptable to me. As I took a good look at my hairline it was also black. I don't make that much of a mess when I color it myself. I am not sure if she is just unprofessional, having a bad day, hates her job or what. Leaving that much color on a person is just not okay and does not meet the standard of a quality salon. Perhaps this was because I bought a package through groupon? I would think that the goal of a groupon sale would be to build clients. If you leave color in my ear to the point that the entire inside is black and leave color on my hairline do not expect a call back. The other stylists may be much better and definitely seemed happier. So go to the salon, see anyone but Lacy and you will be golden!!!

The website to upload printing was slow and did not sent my job to the store. When I called the store the guy told me that google sucks and I cannot use my drive to upload files. When I asked him why my job did not send he said I don't know. He said that he could not help me. Educate your employees please! I have emailed you a job in the past and there was no issue.
