Snitting and Wild Hairs


I might have to shave my head.

Know what I’ve been doing?

1-2No, not writing. Want to guess again? 🙂

1-4If you guessed Snitting, you guessed right. LOL


Why so many hats, you ask, when you only have one head? (And yes, I look silly in a hat.)

They aren’t for me. They’re gifts. Here’s where the wild hair comes in. *sigh*

(Here’s the reason I might need to shave my head. No hair, no wild hairs. Get it?)

1-5If this one looks like a teddy bear jigsaw puzzle, it is. Hopefully, I’ll get it stuffed and finished before I send it on its way.

They’re all for kiddos I don’t know.

Here’s why I got that crazy hair. I have a little friend who’s going to school near Tahlequah. I snitted and sent her a hat a few weeks ago, and she said all the girls in her house loved it. One even wanted to pet it. LOL.

Why not make one for all the girls in her house? the crazy hair whispered in my ear. 😉 When I started knitting furiously, I realized it was kind of a big bite to take here just before Christmas.

But a wild hair is a wild hair. What’s a mother to do? I’m enlisting a little help. Hopefully, we’ll get this wild hair of mine taken care of before Christmas.

1-6 This hat isn’t finished yet. In fact, it’s still on the needles. See at the top? It’s a cable needle (one long contraption with a needle on each end) meant for knitting in the round, except I’m using it like two needles and knitting the hat flat. I’ll seam it when I’m finished.

Leave it to me to use the wrong needles to get what I want. LOL. But it works. I’m getting there.

Did you ever get a wild hair, just when you should be doing something else, such as getting ready for Christmas? Is there anything to do for it except shave your head?

Are wild hairs ever a good thing? (I hope.) 🙂

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

  2. Holy Spirit, or wild hair, who cares? Its a great idea. Wish I could knit!
    By the way, isn’t “wild hair” another one we learned from mama?
    LY (and miss her)

    • It seems like I’m bragging if I say, “God told me to . . . ” And since Mama taught us never to brag, I call it a wild hair. (Yep, that phrase is a Mama thing.)
      In truth (not bragging at all) God put this girl on my heart one day several months ago.
      I’ve been praying for her every day, so I wasn’t a bit surprised when I wanted to send her something and Someone answered. 🙂
      Thanks for bringing that up. 😉
      Love you and miss you bunches!

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
