A month... and a bit

Well, my dreads are almost 5 weeks now, and they're doing relatively well.  My scalp has been dry dry dry(calgary in the winter = DEATH, plus I like to scratch) but otherwise I really have no complaints.  I went on vacation for a few weeks, and seeing as though I was on a boat, a lot of loose hairs resulted.  I know sewing "new" dreads is bad, but at which point is it okay to start sewing them?

They've gotten to a stage where they like to do some crazy things, mostly they just try to attach to each other.  I *think* I tried to attach two together, and now I forget if I did, and whether or not it worked.  There's also quite a few dreads that are basically just hair(they're starting to get stringy)... but I've resolved to pretty much leave them alone.  I would gauge that about 2/3 of them have good, knotted roots.

I'm also thinking I want to put some beads or wraps in on some of the more mature ones.  Most likely beads, since they're probably safer.  It could be a while, though... because I have no money.  At all. EDIT - Oh yeah, and no pictures this time. I feel wayyy too groggy.
