thats a nice weeks worth of growth
If your going for a low hairgrass carpet i would chop it back sooner rather than later,
it might also be an idea to trim the mass on the right down to pormote bushier growth, and you could also replant the cuttings to fill out a bit more.

Looks nice :) its good to see lots of different types of plants in here, there is no substitute for growing plants yourself and finding out how the grow and what they need.

Keep it up :)
