pur

size?

My dreads are 2 weeks old as of like now. I made them pretty thin. The thicker ones, mostly which are on the underneath layers of my hair, seem to be dreading faster than the thinner top ones. So my question is this.
Should i be paitent and the thiner ones will eventualy start to dread up, or should i sew some together to make them thicker?
I know paitence is the key with dreads but i'ts just a small wondering :).

Here are some pictures to show the size anyway.

yes, i'm a lurking bastard

trying to rectify that...every so often i go through a phase of trying to post and comment...and then i forget.

anyway, here's a wee collection of photos. my dreads are about 10-11 months old (we put them in over the course of about a month), and about half the length that my undreaded hair was.
shrinkage man...who knew?

this is my angry spider impersonation...

peyote stitch

sadly I do not have dreadlocks myself, but my lovely boyfriend has some almost three year old dreads. and for his birthday i was wishing to make him some dread beads using peyote stitch. i have been attempting these things for almost a week now and wanting to shoot myself because i just can't seem to figure the stitch out. since i know some of you wear/make peyote beads, can anyone kindly please point me in the direction of a really good tutorial for these things, or perhaps be able to describe the process for me? it looks easy enough but i'm having one hell of a time and well, my boy needs some pretty beads for his locks.

thank you muchly.
