Been there, done that, got the haircut

Well, I got the haircut and look what they gave me as a parting gift!

My braid

The whole process took about an hour. First, Danielle braided ten inches of my hair, cut off the braid, and gave it to me as a keepsake. (She says one of her aunts has a drawerful of braids like this. OK, I thought it was interesting but I’m not starting a collection.) Then came the second-round haircut where she thinned and layered and trimmed and everything. Finally came a finishing haircut.
And now I look like this:

It’s a big big change. When I finally got home afterwards, my son said, “Mom, it’s going to take a while to get used to that.” My daughter was more blunt: “Mom, I DON’T LIKE YOUR HAIRCUT! Can you get your hair cut back on?” The baby was leery of me for a bit, too. But my husband loves it and I’ve gotten used to it, too. It’s definitely a lot easier to take care of.

Last night I finished the mohair hat:

So what was there to do this morning but cast on for the next hat? This one is a Lion Brand pattern: Stocking Stitch Hat in Cozi (Salt and Pepper). It’s for my mom, to match a scarf I made out of the same yarn last year.

“I don’t want to be critical,” says Mr. Beth, “but can’t you take a break?”

  1. Very nice haircut 🙂 I have straight thin hair and used to wear it long as well. I much prefer my short locks. Did you find anyone to spin your hair?
