I need to make myself a felted cloche, yes?

…to go with my new haircut?

New haircut

If I look wryly amused, it’s because John said, "It will be cute!" and I said, "When it grows out, or when you get used to it?"

He’s a nice boy and a good husband, so you can probably guess the answer.


  1. Bernice Bobs Her Hair!

  2. Aw. It is cute! But would be even cuter with a felted cloche. Just because most things are.

  3. I’m with Robynn, I think it’s cute. I love the look on your face, too. (“Can you believe this s***?”) It will be cute with new hats, too.

  4. It looks great – definitely the shortest I’ve ever seen it.

    Guys are strange about hair. When I cut my waist-length hair to a bob my brother asked if I could put it back. And I have a mail coworker who, every time I would cut my hair short would tell me he liked it better longer. Then he commented on my lipstick one day, at which point I told him that his comments were inappropriate and needed to stop.

    Anyway, guys are weird about hair. I think your haircut looks great.

  5. Well, last time I cut it nearly this short, John’s response was, “Sassy!” so he’s pretty on board.

    My dad, however, will undoubtedly ask me why I hate my husband, which is his stock response to any woman who cuts her hair. Because yes – a female’s tonsorial choices are always about her mate. OF COURSE. ;-)

  6. What will you do with your ponytail holders?! I think it’s cute.

  7. I think it’s cute! But I need to make a felted hat a well, so we could make one together. AFTER the Christmas knitting -which is NOT done. Sigh.

    LOVE it! Looks very chic, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

  9. Okay, here are your questions. The first four I’m giving to everybody who asked (#2 is stolen from the ones lass gave me, because I had fun thinking about the answer) and the last one is just for you!

    1. Your house is on fire. All the people and pets are already out and safe. You can take only one thing with you. What will it be and why?

    2. A benefactor has agreed to fund you for a year. There are no strings attached – you can do whatever you’d like for 12 months, practical or frivolous, and have it all paid for by this person. What will you do?

    3. Tell me about your favorite place (you can take this any way you like it — a cozy chair, an interesting continent). Why is it your favorite? When did you first go there? When did you last go there? What is your favorite memory there? Is there someone you would especially like to take there?

    4. Of all the things that you have made or done in your life so far, what are you most proud of? Why does the thing you picked mean the most to you?

    5. What made you decide to go back to school? Was it a gradual realization of wanting to change directions or more of an epiphany? Was there someone who inspired you?
