Almost Done!

Listen while you read...

One more sleeve to go of the Gathered Pullover. I'm unraveling the body of the BR sweater to finish up. I thought that this piece would yield two large balls of yarn, but not so. Maybe I nicked the strands while unraveling. Darn it.
I like the way it fits so far.

And, since I'm ever so guilty of lurking on natural hair blogs but never posting about my natural hair, I thought that I should share. After realizing some time ago that the blogosphere had such a large collection of natural hair journey journals, I decided to jump right in. Because I never viewed my current hair style as a journey as much as I do a destination I think it's been hard for me to keep up with hair posts. I mean, how much can you talk about a hairstyle that rarely changes. It's probably just me. I'm posting now because on Friday I'll be getting my first professional up-do. A style that I found on Renaissance Hairtopia. I can't wait until I have enough hair for a wedding bun. Wish me luck!

Excuse my mess.

Boy are you a fast knitter. Didn't you just start that sweater?

I love your locs. I also have natural hair but people think that its easier to take care of when in actuality it takes a lot more work. I'd love to hear about any natural hair websites that you know of. I'm already a member on Nappturality.

Virtuous, you know you want to do it. Just give in this time.

Harlem, Kamika has some pretty cool links on her site. I started this sweater on 11/26 and should be finished this week. That's almost a month. That's not fast enough for someone with a 50 item que. I wish I could knit/crochet with my feet. You know there's someone out there who can.

Thanks for the hair complements!

Your sweater is coming along beautifully. Your locs look good - I just hate when I see women and men with locks and the new growth is looking like matted hair - I want to tell them - Its called maintenance my people.
