My girlfriend works a day job, so we just tied hers in for the weekend. They're pretty easy to take in and out. They've been pretty fun. Grin

We kept getting "the crease" though...is there a solution to avoid it?

Love the colours you chose, and I'm envious that you're able to wear them to work.

Nice work-!! I've always secretly coveted the black-white-pink combo. By creases do you mean that the felt is sort of making an indented wrinkle along the dread? It's similar to the 'bums' you get with felting beads- i think... I know if you are using merino you can keep working the crease/bum until it felts to itself and seals up... if that makes ANY sense at all. lol!

Jane Doe- Do you know what I'm talking about? I've seen your vines up close now and they are FLAWLESS!! what is it that you do to make 'em bum-free?Huh heeheehee....

Exactly...It's almost as if the thing's got a seam. And then there's all the bubblies along the dread, but I think those come from my own laziness somehow.
