In the pink

One of the things I don't like about having short hair is waiting for it to grow. I'm a person who likes near-constant change. I get bored easy. When I had long hair I could put it up, where it down, braid it - do all kinds of things with it. With my short hair I have two options - bangs or swept back. So I decided to do something crazy... I got a bleaching kit... and a tub of dye...
 and I went PINK!

The really fun part is that this colour will fade in a few weeks and I can do a different colour!

In knitting news, I finally finished up the Glinda Mitts with the leftover Skinny Bugga. For the past week, all I've had to do is the few rows and cast off on the thumb... what took so long? I'll probably get a day or two of wear before the weather warms up again (it's dropped down to freezing, making me glad I didn't plant that annual garden yet!)

And now, time to get back to those elf booties.... Happy Monday!

It looks like you have some really thick hair. Lucky you. Pink is your color!


I'm letting mine grow out from being REALLY short. It is taking FOREVER!

Very cute!! Way to change it up. I agree that you can have many different "looks" when you have long hair to play with. I think you've found a fun way to make some changes while you are waiting for your locks to grow out.

Let's call it magenta ... it's nicer that way! You work in a creative environment, don't you? They should embrace it!

Love the hair! I have been wanting to do that myself. I think it would be much better to "highlight" my gray than cover it up.
