Yesterday I got a haircut!
Maybe you can’t tell, it’s still pretty long. I cut 8″ off wednesday night, as a donation for Pantene Beautiful Lengths.* Then I went to the stylist and told her that I liked my long hair, I just wanted more style in my hairstyle. She managed to take my vague mumblings and made my hair much more cute, and exactly what I wanted. I’m very pleased! Since I didn’t change my style I’ve taken it upon myself to point out my new haircut to people because they won’t notice otherwise. Call it fishing for complements if you want, I don’t mind!
Today is so beautiful out I took my new sock in progress out for a walk.
Don’t laugh, I can knit ribbing and walk at the same time at least as well as those people on their smart phones can type/surf/read and walk at the same time. I know because I saw at least 4 of them out walking too.
*My preferred hair donation charity. Locks of Love only does wigs for permanent hair loss, Pantene does wigs for cancer patients. Also Pantene’s donation program is better funded, and more clear about both their goals and what they can and can not accept. I have nothing serious against Locks of Love. But they are a very small organization frequently overwhelmed by donations they can not use, and there’s a lot of confusion about their mission.
