I must apologize to my commenters. For some reason Outlook was sending your notices to the trash folder and I didn't see them. I think I've fixed it.

January 18, 2006 - October 23, 2007

Elaine Elaine last cut my hair, on or about January 18, 2006.

Just after that, to many of my knitting friends were diagnosed with cancer. They were loosing their hair. I could grow more than enough.

After about a year, I looked into Locks of Love. A great organization, but you can't have grey hair. One day while watching The Today Show, Pantene announced their
Beautiful Lengths program. Wigs for women. And you can have a bit of grey hair.

So I continued to let my hair grow.

October 23rd, I walked into Salon One like this before

And left like this

after You can see the 10 inch ponytail on the counter.

Elaine spent a good 1/2 hour blow drying it straight. Thanks Elaine! It will not be that straight until I have it trimmed.

Lots of knitting stuff will be coming soon. I've worked my fingers to the bone and ended up with a bit of carpel tunnel/knitters wrist preparing for the Va Wesylan Artisian Show this weekend in Va Beach. Stop by if you can.
