PLEASE tell me I am not the only one who does this!

I have really long hair and even when I put it up I always manage to sew my hair into my needlework. Cross stitch, needlepoint, etc.....every piece gets my hair sewn up in it  Undecided

My husband says not to worry about it because this way no one can ever steal my work as their own because my DNA is all wrapped up in it.  Tongue

I pick it out when I see it, but of course some gets by me. I swear I am going to have to start wearing a hair net!

Omg, my hair gets in EVERYTHING! It's only just below my shoulders, but I shed like a dog. I was crocheting myself a dishcloth the other day and I swear a couple pieces of hair got woven in. I don't want to know how much of my hair and how much of my cat's fur is in the rag rug I'm making now. (The cat has a special fascination with the rag rug because of its dangly parts and the fact that it has THREAD OMG in it, so she's always laying on it or chewing on it)

I just finished an aran baby blanket and had to spend about an hour untangling my hair from it! (I have dark brown hair so it really showed up...)

My friend, who has long blonde hair that gets EVERYWHERE, knitted me a blanket for my birthday and her mum saw it and asked "where did you get the yarn with the silver in it?" My friend looked at it and said "That's not silver, that's my hair!"

There's nothing like giving away a little (or big) piece of yourself when you make something for someone. Cheesy

I have always been fascinated by this phenomena.  I imagine future historians examining the DNA found in handmade goods to reconstruct our lives!
Yes I am weird.

With crochet and knitting at least i know that it's traditions with some people to work a strand of hair into the piece so that when it gets passed down from generation to generation there's also a part of the person who made it in the piece. So you're not working annoying bits of hair into your pieces your continuing a time honored tradition Cheesy

My hair always get everywhere. When I clean my room I feel like I live in a hair salon. I don't have a lot of room, so I do most of my crafting on the floor, so hair gets in any fabric or yarn I set down. Sometimes it falls into stuff I'm gluing too.

I sew my hair in to a lot of handicrafts. It's annoying. Usually it's a shed hair, but sometimes it's still attached to my head. Ouch.
