Very, very nice.  I always wanted to do something awsome with my hair like dreads in purple and blue.  Sadly, my school doesn't allow non-naturally colored hair Undecided Oh well, at least I can look at some great hair here.

Thanks GloriousHats, I buy my wool from a little rural farm that's an hour drive from my place. They mainly supply spinners and think I'm such a hoot when I go in with my felted locks  Cheesy

Yup jungledread.com is mostly all me, I just didn't want to overwhelm the post with pics. I'm starting to teach another crafty friend of mine and as christmas comes closer, she'll be helping out with orders.
I've too many things on my plate and as christmas comes closer it all intensifies  Undecided  I know I need to drop something, but I don't know what!

I know what you mean about too much!  I like your dreads, too - it looks like some of them are kind of twisted into the hair?  Never seen that.  Can you tell how you did it?
