Happy post

I've returned to the small town where I grew up. I've never spotted dreads in all my years living here. I had just washed my hair and it was all fuzzy and sticking out all over the place. But life goes on and I walked into the grocery store and before I hardly cleared the entrance, a teenage guy cashier said "I'm diggin' the dreads."  It made my evening. I grinned the entire way home. I had no idea getting a compliment from a stranger would mean so much!

Here they are at 5 months. I knit the headband recently; the pattern is free and can be found on Ravelry and is is called "Vanessa". I love it because it keeps all my hair pushed back and out of my way, and it's super soft.
