I’ve always had a head full of thick, curly, crazy, unmanageable hair. Some may say lovely, but I say *&??&%*??$#%
A couple years ago, I sat in a salon chair for over 5 hours to have it straightened and I had 3 stylists (I kid you not) painstakingly working what smelled like a combination of bleach and chlorine and rotten apples into my hair to make it all glossy and straight. I walked out of the salon that day a great deal poorer but still feeling like a million bucks because I could actually swish my hair and not have it give me whiplash.
That lasted a whole 2 weeks and then of course, the roots grew in, wiry, curly, unmanageable. Ack!!!
Now that my roots have all grown out and I’m back to the way things were unruly and wild, I’m finally cool with it…I think…maybe. But the downside to having all this hair is that I can’t wear hats, even the lovely handknit kind that I love knitting. Baseball caps during a bad hair day – big no, no!
Enter the beret for us curly-wurlies, yay!! I bought some Malabrigo Silky Merino yarn for exactly this purpose and in the perfect colorway that reminded me of wintry skies. My first attempt at knitting this type headgear, turned out to be this…
