  • Working with a person from Iceland I recognize that Hrafnhildur is Arnar’s daughter, it still wouldn’t help me pronounce it, but I understand that her brothers would have the “surname” Arnarson. Enjoy the Hamptons, hot as the bejezus here.

  • Gertrude Jekyll’s HAT?? Cracked me up! 🙂
    Sorry about the ticket, though.

  • Gee whiz, ladies!
    I go offline for 5 days, and I return to find ladies with luxuriant locks braided to each other and that Ann has been in 4 Baltic countries and that Estonia came into being with a singing revolution…

  • But what IS the symbolism of the orthopedic shoes???

  • This is the ultimate *top this!* post. OK, you win. 😉

  • But am I really impressed?
    Yes.

  • Very cool! Creepy indeed with a bit of music and a bit of wind machine.
    I wonder what Hrafnhildur’s American friends call her.

  • Enjoy the Hamptons. The waves will be rockin’ & rollin’ due to Hurricane Bill.

  • I’m thinking this hairdo isn’t going to be all the rage this Fall. And, I’m thinking that’s a good thing.

  • ticket – Kay – you’ve been here long enough to know to park in the parking lots and walk wherever you want to go – but sorry about the ticket – I’ve been lucky to come back 5 minutes late and not have a ticket – I guess the brownies walked slower that day 😉

  • Say hello to the Contessa for me while you’re out there.

  • Little Edie Beale of Grey Gardens had a lot to say about the Hamptons. My favorite: “It’s a mean, nasty, Republican town. They’ll get you for wearing red shoes on a Thursday.” Your flip flops aren’t red by any chance?

  • OhmygoodnessOhmygoodness. You think I can’t handle it, and you’re right. I can absolutely not handle this. I’m with Jan: you win.

  • The link to the video is down – just more proof of the power of the knitting blog. I will check back later. What I did see was incredible. How do you find this stuff??

  • Just Wow! Love Orna as always.

  • Who’s going to card and spin that enormous bale of wool?

  • Icelandians are weird but wonderful.

  • dear kay,
    check out this lady – an original müncherin. she wove herself a hat out of her own hair. nearly mispelt meself there! she runs the karl valentin museum amongst other things (the housewives political party).

  • Weird and wonderful indeed ! Ethereal yet creepy. Art, partly because it makes you think. Slightly hair obsessed, possibly.

  • I don’t think I could have a meaningful conversation with that artist!

  • Speaking as a mother of teenagers, I suppose that is one way to make sure your kids are REALLY following your sentence of grounding them.

    forgot to paste it in yesterday!

  • I know exactly why anyone would talk to Orna about her hair – it’s amazing – ‘certain scale and magnitude’ is a very good description. Much more so than it looks in the vid, although that is quite a sight.
    But it was the letter that ‘looks like a P but is not a P’ that had me laughing. I wouldn’t have it either! x x x

  • Fantastic post!

  • So. Do you suppose the hairdresser used a ‘Russian join’?

  • Knew an artist in Baltimore who was really into hair. Oh, I tried, collected some of mine at a cutting…intrigued by the gray/not gray but really could not get into it.
    Just saw much of it at a exhibition “The Seen & the Hidden: [Dis]Covering the Veil” at Austrian Cultural Forum. Last art before leaving the City and very provocative. Hope it travels elsewhere in America and women gather to ponder how we cover and uncover ourselves and meaning thereof.
    Hoping you and Ann make another book tour visit to PDX. love, n
