Sucessful (partial) flantu knot out

Hi guys! Last night I did a little experiment: I flat twisted the front of my hair, then did a sort or bantu knot thing on the ends. Then I went to sleep. I took it out after breakfast, and this is what it looked like: http://public.fotki.com/thislittledove/startin-out/img-4416.html
It looks like this now: http://public.fotki.com/thislittledove/startin-out/img-4422.html

Just felt like sharing. That was the first time I've ever done an anything-out, or anything-twist, so I'm pretty proud of myself, lol. When I'm brave enough, I'll do my whole head.

    It came out nice! I've always wanted to try doing bantu knots AND flat-twists, but I'm a bit impatient. I get frustrated when doing specific styling. LOL!

    One day I will tackle it(them). One day....
    A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

    Haha,
    thank you! I like the way you do your hair (before I joined NC, I ran into your Photobucket several times), so I'm sure when that one day of patience comes for you, it'll turn out great. =)
