Spiraling Notions

Learning the Braid

So, I love fiber...

I can admit this freely. I also love the little haute braids that the fancy stuff comes in, even if I cannot stand the price. I have finally learned how to make the braid! I experimented on my Sheep Shed order and here is the result:

It was a lot of fun to learn and it is actually fairly space saving as well. I have gone back and braided all of the other loose fiber I have and they fit neatly in a drawer now - instead of bags bunched everywhere and stuffed in spaces. I left the fibers that "drift" a lot - well enough alone - like bamboo, soysilk and hemp... but all the wools braided neatly and cleanly.
