I finally got around to twisting the fringe for this scarf I made a little while back.
Looking back through the images in WordPress, it seems I didn’t share a finished picture. No doubt because technically it wasn’t finished.
I’m now wondering if I even blocked it. Probably not, as I would only do that after deciding how to finish the fringe. Twisted, not twisted or simply hemmed. I guess it can now have a soak.
But here is me twisting the fringe. I do this by hand. You can buy a little machine to do it. Or a hair braiding machine. But, I don’t do many so I’m not wasting money yet.
It takes me about 15 to 20 minutes to do one end of a scarf, so it’s not super long. The video I increased the speed and cut it to 7 minutes as I already had done four braids.
I am in a roll this morning. I purchased two needed bracelet kits when on holiday. Finally, I got around to making one of them.
It’s an interesting and relatively simple diversion, although fiddly.
The kits include the beads, leather cord, waxed cord and a button. Then it’s a case of starting with the button, tying on the wax cord, and adding the beads one by one.
The first part is the hardest, but once you have a few beads locked in place it gets easier.
When I make the other one, I’m going to check the bead thickness and grade them. This one I noticed has a thinner bead now and then, so the leather cord draws in more. Best to put those thinner beads at either end next time.
Oh, and more jam!
