My mother had a minor procedure done on her head the first week I was home for Christmas break. She was perfectly fine afterward except for the fact that the stitches/recovery stipulated that she could not wash her hair for a few days.
We had church to attend. She couldn't shampoo her hair.
What to do? What to do?
What she decided to do was ask me ahead of time to bring all my berets home with me.
Sunday morning she picked out her outfit, we found an appropriate beret, and styled her up beautifully. No one at church had any idea that the decision was anything but an aesthetic one.
Handknits save the day yet again!
