Tomato Done! And Off to a New Home

Here is the completed Tomato. I'm thrilled with this sweater. Unfortunately, I will never wear it. Yeah, not kidding.

My hair dresser is named Laurie. She rocks. Whenever I leave her salon I feel pretty, but not in a fake "this is not me" way.
Every year at Christmas I make her something. It started with a scarf, then a hat, then a pair of socks, then a sweater...this year's gift HAD to be good.
I missed my December hair cut. So when I decided to get one yesterday I had to scramble for something for her. I couldn't NOT give her anything, right?
Tomato was it.

So I wrapped it up, drove to my appt. and Laurie wasn't there.
She called my cell saying that she had been in a car accident. Ugh.
She's fine. Her car isn't.
Anyways, we made it to the salon- I picked her up at her house- and we had a great time while she prettied me up.
Tomato lives with Laurie now, but don't worry- I will be making this again!

Wow. I bow down to your generosity. Truly. I feel I've gone above and beyond when I give my hairdresser a larger-than-normal tip. Wow.

That is so sweet of you! I'm sure Laurie appreciated it after the day she had!

That is so generous of you. Your hairdresser must rock! I'm not sure mine would appreciate handknits.
