Kumihimo

 

KumihimoKumihimoI have a new craft.  Thanks to the blog Seabreeze Spinners, she started to post information about it and started posting her braids.  Then, I put a book on my Amazon Wish List and my sister bought me that book for Christmas.  It was awesome!  It’s so much fun and it’s so easy.  There is so much room for creativity and color and beauty and everything.  Here is the second braid that I made and a close up to show the colors.  This is a 16 strand round braid which is the easiest braid to learn and very fast to finish.  My finishing needs some practice but I like how these look.  This one is a necklace, but I am working on another one that will be a strap for my reading glasses.  Here is a picture of the disk with that braid on it working.

Ok so I have also done a little spinning on my Dulce de Leche fiber which will be my Dollar and a Half sweater.  Here is how the fiber is looking as singles.

I have one bobbin done and 5 more to go to get this done.
