HAIR - Sunday May 4, 2008

a little bit of styling mousse
in a month, the back will be fine
and the top will need to be trimmed
and it will all need to be re-dyed
i like the top & sides
the back it TTTTTOOOO short

so, this is PRE-cut
it's about the same length
all over


OK, so when i do a pattern stitch
i learned to add stitch markers
to keep the count correct
a Light Pink bead is the first pattern repeat
or Beginning of the Row
the Dar$ker Pink is for the rest
then, i pin the first row of
the pattern stitch
knit "X" patterns to get the legnth i want
so, then i have all these pins in the side
i count my pins till i have the correct number
there HAD to be a better way
bought Numeric Beads
put them on the pins
they won't go over the bend
so, it's a pain to pin the row & add the bead
i remember a menber of the Mon & Tue groups
that uses lever back ear rings to make
stitch markers for crochet
so, i made little row counters from them
1 - 9 = ONLY the number bead
10 - 19 Pink bead & number bead
i won't be knitting more than 20 pattern repeats
LATER, i can
pin my gusset & toe decrease
so i don't loose track

hair ... to cut .. to color

taken May 3, '08
after using root booster/mousse
went outside & it went flat
wearing make-up to
REALLY thinkin' i need to cut it off
then the quandry
do i color it or NO

the color is lighter

Anthony talks to me

he kept referring to me by name
asked questions
another patron told me the periwinkle shirt i had on
was a good color for me
got to talking with other patrons AND nail techs
started talking about hiding grey
was told by 2 patrons that they wished their hair was
the color of mine
told them how to get it
they were surprised it came from a "MAGIC BOX"
guessed me to be 32 - 35
it was a good day
