OT - hair
Well, yesterday I got my hair cut. I went in to have 10 inches cut to give to locks of love. That's what I told the hair dresser.

My hair was past my waist. I haven't done anything but a trim for 20 years.

It now doesn't even reach my shoulders.

10 inches? I don't think so.

I wasn't looking. Big mistake!!!

At least the people at locks of love should be thrilled.

You will get used to it! At least it is going to a good cause.
I used to have pretty long hair, and got it cut above my shoulders a few years ago. I love the length now!

OTN: nothing :(

I've cut my hair off several times, and each time it grew back. My sister just cut TWO FEET of hair off of her head last fall, and it's already below her shoulders again. I was looking at her and thinking about how short her hair was, and then I realized it was only short compared to when it was long, not compared to other peoples' short.
On the needles: Falling Leaves Socks, Punkin Hats, Artful Afgan and another waterlily for a friend of mine (on hold until I feel like working with that yarn again)

In the queue:
Jack Skellington baby afghan
Finished: Warm Up America Square, Basketweave Baby Blanket (now to ship it), Massachusetts Dishcloth for the Yarn Harlot, Homeless Hat

WTG, you are brave! I am sure that it looks lovely!! Does it feel weird without the weight of your hair?! I know they are so excited to get your hair, that's just wonderful of you :D

Yay! I did the same thing almost two years ago and I donated more than a foot. I've decided that I actually prefer my hair shorter, so I'm really glad I cut it off. Maybe once you get used to it you'll love it? And if not, it'll grow back in much less than 20 years.

The first time you wash your hair is really strange though because there's far less of it than your used to.

I would love to see a photo of your hair before and after. That would be cool to see. That is a wonderful thing you did!

My girlfriend just did that yesterday too! They had a big thing here with volunteers from a local salon to cut the hair. What a wonderful gift to give.

What a wonderful donation, Maggie!

And it will grow out--no worries there. Doesn't your head feel about 20 lbs. lighter, and your hair all swingy? I love that about a long-overdue haircut!
