Ah, hair

I don't know about you gals, but me, I'll be the first to admit - my hair and I don't get along. Some days it's sleek and straight, other days, it's this. Can you see the weird ass curls that seem to have a million directions? Yea, there's no taming that. See I fall asleep in my damp hair many a nights, so the top is flat while the bottom flares like wildfire. Quick, must find a way to cover up the bad hair day. Amelia Earhart to the rescue - again. This time, in size 8's and one ball of KFI Cashmerino in teal (55% Merino, 33% Microfiber, 12% Cashmere). This is the third time I made this hat, and I finally get to keep it. And yes, that's Raspy I'm wearing. Loving it too.
Around 9-ish tonite.. I decided that I'm in the mood for some soup. I wore my new hat, totally working it as I walked to the restaurant for take-out, and totally working it as I drove home - window down, of course. Gotta feel the wind in my hair. Two seconds later, I discovered that I had totally locked myself out of my apartment. Oh shit. The landlord does not live in my apt complex, and I'm too cheap to call a locksmith (The last time I did that it cost me 100+ buckaroos - think of all the yarn I could have bought with that money... yes I think of money in terms of balls of yarn). AHHH... what did I do? Hm, let's see. First, I uninstalled the mesh screen from my window (had to fight through the thorns of the evil rose bush standing right infront of it), propped the window open, and crawled through a foot long crack. Then I found my keys, went out again to re-install the mesh screen, and came back inside, relieved. Whew, that stealth operation was worth at least two bags of Rowan yarns.....
Mari tagged me for a meme. But that will have to be another post. Stay tuned....

You have to think in terms of yarn, that was two sweaters you could've lost. I think I would've cried if I had locked myself out, never thinking that I could break into my apt.

Love the hat, again.

Quick thinking! I think of money in terms of yarn too. Saving money elsewhere means I can spend it at the yarn shop.

ah, that hat is great great, glad you get to keep this one.

how cool is it that you broke into your own home! i remember when i was little once my brother did the same thing and he had to go onto the roof to reach a teeny attic window. so thrilling to watch!

hmm, that money that *would* have spent on keys should definitely go to some yarn prize, dontcha think?

Cute hat and you are so pretty! I'm glad you made it into your house. A few months ago I drove to the yarn store and when I parked and checked that I wasn't in anyone's driveway, I locked myself out of my car. With the engine running! I almost cried with embarassment, but worse was spending $80 to watch a guy break into my car. All the yarn I could have bought!

Oh no! Dang, that sucks. That's one instance where having a roommate is a good thing. Great hat! I've been meaning to make one for a while now. Too bad I can't wear knit hats at work.

wow...is that your natural haircolor? it's so brown!!! v. nice. good contrast w/the color of the yarn. the hat is v. intriguing (sp...? intrigue, intriguing? why doesn't that look right?!).
it's crazy how knitting makes you reconsider your spending habits in terms of how much yarn you could be buying otherwise. i find i save more money for yarn-related purchases that way. but i don't save any more or less money overall. *sigh*

listen, supermodel...firstly, i wish i had hair like yours. have you seen my bad hairday photos on flickr? real bad. although, i never knew why anyone wears shower caps, but on days that you don't want to wash it, when you keep all the moisture out, it keeps the craziness out in a big way. although you do have to wear a shower cap. i feel embarrassed even when i am not seen by anyone. they don't make cool ones. second, i butt would not fit thru a one foot window, and i would be stuck, even now, by my boobs or ass in the window. i miss ya!
