I love it when I get unexpected compliments from the most unlikely people. Today at the grocery store it was insanely crowded and I was patiently waiting for a little old lady to move her shopping cart out of the aisle before I made my way in. She looked up at me, stared hard, then said "ooooh, your hair! it's so pretty! what a neat idea. I never thought of doing that." I'm not sure what she never thought of doing. Dreads? Tying yarn into it? (though I haven't added any yarn for a couple years and it's looking pretty sad) Either way, it made my day.
And for good measure, here's a pic. Might this be what the future holds?
