knot even


The plaiting section of this book excites me. I'm definitely going to be incorporating some of the techniques into my bracelets. Oh, and I'm completely redoing+remaking the chain bracelet I made earlier. I don't like that the way I have to finish it ruins the whole look and is something I would never attempt again. So instead of giving Sasha my janky prototype, I'm going back to square one and banging something incredible out. Still need to find some cheap thick ass gangster chains and more leather and cotton cord.

That sounds really great--the shapes can be so pretty.
P.S. Books...what type are you into? Right now, I really like the realistic fiction that addresses life and philosophy in books like Martin Eden and the Seawolf (Jack London), or Madeleine L'Engle's adult novels, such as The Small Rain.
