dye-ing for change

I am applying for a new postition at a new store. I took a good look in the mirror at my locs and decided that it was time to go for more color, less grey, so now I am a brunette! I do this periodically. There's a nice natural hair dye at the store that I like to use, made from vegetable extracts and amomonia free.

I also am about 1/2 done with baby brothers scarf. I went into a yarn shop and looked for a nice soft yarn in a neutral color other than black. All he wears is black. Mom suggested he needed a bright color, I wanted something he would wear. His wife will probably steal it from him, but hopefully he will get to wear it and if she "borrows" it, I will feel it is a complement, she's very picky. It's 100% Baby Alpaca Chunky in a soft, sorta pearly grey. Love it. I would keep it myself. Need to find a nice something for big bro Greg next. I have a yarn for his wife, a beautiful ruby red silk and something soft. Did I mention these already? Oh, well.
Anyway, after watching the news today, and getting another parking ticket, I needed to veg and knit today. Tomorrow it's an on the road day. Gotta start with probably a trip to silver spring, a meeting at what will hopefully be my new store, and then on to the places I am scheduled to visit tomorrow. It's going to be a very long day. I think I'll reward myself with a nice trip to the yarn store while I am there :-)

Oh, I love this scarf - it's certainly the perfect color for someone who wears black only and is in desperate need of something to lighten this up a bit! I mean, he probably wouldn't wear any really bright color, so this light grey is perfect! And the pattern is so gorgeous!
Poor you for getting a parking ticket - isn't that so annoying? ;(

Mean old meter maids, phooey!
I really like the scarf. The suggestion is from the chica in the yarn shop.
