15 March: 2 new things before breakfast

Awake early, thinking about a weaving project, I started to think about some braids I'd seen on Laverne's blog. They looked a bit like Japanese kumihimo braids , and I had tried those a couple of times, so I had an idea how they might work.

Cut some strands of cotton and did a 4-strand braid, then got ambitious, and violĂ !* here's a multi-colour 6-strand braid as well.

You can see quite clearly where I started to get the hang of proper tension.

* Yes, I know it's really "voilĂ ", but I saw this mis-spelling recently, and it amuses me.
