It’s starting to get cold again. And you know what that means. Yep, hat season. Who am I kidding? It’s 70 degrees right now and partly cloudy. But before you know it, it’ll be 20 below. There’s another reason I’ll be hatting-it soon. Behold, my wild hair!!
And just because I’ve been told I don’t smile enough:
I’ve had these twists in about three weeks now. I’ve tried almost all manner of dredlock-styling aids except wax and some of them just refuse to stay. I was instructed to use some Sebastian Molding Mud(thangQ to the kind person who gave hubby two Target giftcards, ’cause I was NOT paying damn near $20 for a 4.4oz jar!), and I’m iffy on it. I figure my best bet would be to just not comb my hair anymore and not manipulate it as much as possible to get the locks to stay in over time. I know there’s a reason why Rastafarians cover their dreads, and I’m not one, but I’ve got my own: It’s gonna look like hell long before they look right! Hence the need for a hat.
And I’ve got this:
4 of 6 balls of Tahki Chelsea Silk, 50/50 wool silk blend. I’m thinking a simple cloche or ribbed-hem beanie might do the trick. Nothing fancy to osbcure the tweedy effect of the yarn. I could probably get by with only one ball and the other 5 can become a matching stole.. need to find a worthy pattern for it.
And I know you wanna know:
Check out the stitchmarkers, made by me. 9 repeats(I think? I lost track…) so far. I just want to get this thing off the needles. I need the needle for another project(can you say Startitis?). 🙂 Really, it’s not that bad right now. With Kiri, and a mystery project or 5, I’m alright. Honestly.
WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Happy Labor Day!!
